By Edward Lin, Atul Gaur, Michael Jones, Aamer Ahmed

The accuracy with which clinicians can find nerves and blood vessels has elevated significantly with the improvement of moveable hand held ultrasound scanners, and no forte has felt the ease greater than anesthesia. This useful atlas of ultrasound anatomy addresses the 2 major demanding situations for an individual studying ultrasound-guided suggestions: 1. the place do I position the probe? 2. What precisely am I ? every one nerve block or vascular entry website is illustrated with: • an anatomical line representation • a scientific photo exhibiting the proper ultrasound probe place • the ultrasound experiment • a line representation of the test labelled to point the salient anatomical positive aspects All correct anatomic areas are incorporated: top limb, reduce limb, neck, thorax and stomach. Concise notes for every access point out test landmarks and provides worthy information and suggestion on strength problems. Sonoanatomy for Anesthetists is an important source for anesthetists, intensivists and persistent discomfort experts.

The motor supply is to the three adductor muscles of the thigh – adductor longus (AL), adductor brevis (AB), adductor magnus (AM) – and gracilis. The sensory supply covers an area over the medial thigh extending to the knee, and also has an articular branch to the knee joint capsule. The obturator nerve emerges from the pelvis via the obturator foramen, splitting into anterior and posterior divisions before entering the thigh. In the thigh these divisions are separated by AB. The anterior division lies between AL and AB, while the posterior division lies between AB and AM.

At the wrist the ulnar nerve usually lies between the ulnar artery and the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon. 1 Probe placement for ulnar nerve block at wrist At the proximal wrist crease, locate the ulnar arterial pulse and identify the flexor carpi ulnaris tendon by asking the patient to flex the wrist to the ulnar side. Place a small linear or hockey-stick probe across the ulnar artery and flexor carpi ulnaris tendon. 2 38 ULNAR NERVE AT THE WRIST UPPER LIMB Scan of ulnar nerve at wrist The ulnar artery is a convenient vascular landmark in the scan.

Insert the needle out of plane for catheter placement. 35 UPPER LIMB MEDIAN NERVE AT THE WRIST Anatomy of the median nerve at the wrist The median nerve enters the wrist from the space between the flexor digitorum superficialis and flexor digitorum profundus muscles. It becomes superficial in the midline of the wrist, lying between the flexor carpi radialis tendon laterally (radial side) and the palmaris longus tendon medially (ulnar side), before entering the palm of the hand in a sheath deep to the flexor retinaculum.
