Achieving successful ankle blocks can be a very useful tool for Podiatrists who have the rights to administer local anaesthetics. If you limit your practice to digital blocks this presentation can help you to develop a wider offering to your patients who may present with painful lesions.
The video covers neuroanatomy, locating sites for nerve blocks, and is presented by Consultant Podiatrist, Jim Pickard.
The course includes:
- The benefits to your practice of introducing ankle blocks
- A revision of relevant anatomy
- A video demonstration of each of the nerve blocks required to achieve an ankle block
- Course Notes
This video 23 minutes in length, but you are encouraged to review the video several times and undertake further reading of the included notes and references.
It is anticipated that this will lead to 3 hours of CPD activity.
