  2. Sweet technique, love it.
    Have you guys seen the US-block needles with the grooves on the barrel of he needle?
    I love these, the needle stands out like a light sabre on your screen – you can see the tip so easily!!
    Let me know – I will send you some to try – they rock- and we’re invented by a guy I know who is he local guru of US in anaesthesia

  3. Casey, love those needles, just don’t love the price!

    John, I prefer bupivicaine. Al least when it’s not on back order. Usually use 0.25%

  4. I’m reading about femoral nerve blocks (good for femur and knee fx) and iliacus blocks (good for hip fractures) can you clarify? Is a femoral nerve block a good blook for a proximal hip fracture.
