With the advent of increased use of peripheral nerve blocks in anesthesia for adults, ultrasound techniques have been evolving to improve technique and efficiency over the past 10 yr. During this time, change and adoption of these techniques in pediatric anesthesia have been much slower. This book is the first truly comprehensive textbook for managing peripheral nerve blocks in children. Many textbooks in regional anesthesia address techniques that serve either nerve stimulation or ultrasound. Pediatric Atlas of Ultrasound- and Nerve Stimulation-guided Regional Anesthesia is a well-designed textbook on peripheral nerve blocks in children that includes information for both techniques. This book is well written and can be used by novices as well as by experienced personnel who use it as a refresher before performing a peripheral nerve block. Even though the textbook is geared for pediatric patients, it can definitely be used for adult regional anesthesia as well.
