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.


We have recently re-designed our resources site. The process of updating and adding new content is ongoing.
