Perioperative ultrasound for anaesthetists

We are a group of ultrasound enthusiasts involved all aspects
of perioperative ultrasound, with a focus on regional anaesthesia.

We all have a strong clinical background and are committed to teaching
others about safe and effective ultrasound use.

BATS can provide access to the NZ Anaesthesia Toolbox site, part of the global
Anesthesia Toolbox project which shares educational resources online.


We have shared some of our own educational material here. For a comprehensive online RA educational resource, please register for the NZ Anaesthesia Toolbox.
