What Your Peers Say

  • This class was a great review of the anatomy and physiology and pharmacology of local anesthetics.
  • For the most part all of the presenters were very approachable and extremely helpful. I felt confident after the hands-on portion that I could do these blocks at my hospital.
  • Great refresher. It was good to hear different practice styles from so many different providers.
