Published Reviews

    "The heavy emphasis on cross-sectional anatomy of targeted nerves in both a relatively unusual and extremely useful format for practical application of regional techniques...Excellent graphic representation of the structured landmarks and the course of the nerves...Recommend." - Mayo Clinic Proceedings

    "A beautifully illustrated book covering a wide number of regional anaesthetic techniques...Easily understood...Easy to use." -Anesthesia & Analgesia


    "Previous editions were published in 1992, 1999, and 2006; this third edition incorporates the necessary updates and is enriched by the participation of six contributors who supplement the expertise of author David L. Brown (The Cleveland Clinic, Ohio). After introductory chapters on local anesthetics and regional anesthesia equipment, subsequent sections address blocks of the upper extremity, lower extremity, head and neck, airway, trunk, and neuraxis, as well as chronic pain blocks. Each of 21 procedures is illustrated with clear, elegant artwork and other images and is described in terms of use, technique, pitfalls, and pearls. The online site (access included with purchase of the text) contains the full text, links to PubMed abstracts, and 12 videos demonstrating correct anatomic needle placement."

    "The fourth edition of Atlas of Regional Anesthesia, edited by David L. Brown, fulfills its stated goal to ‘teach physicians needing to learn regional anesthesia and pain medicine technical procedures.’…The trainees to whom I have shown this atlas have found it to be superb. Atlas of Regional Anesthesia can be a source of immediate preprocedure review for the anesthesiologist and should be made available as a reference wherever regional anesthesia is practiced." - Martin H. Dauber, MD, University of Chicago- JAMA

    "…this is an excellent general atlas of regional anaesthesia, with excellent anatomical diagrams, and ultrasound images."- I. Kapila and M. Columb, British Journal of Anaesthesia
