Morning session (9am – 1pm):

The delegates will get to watch live demonstration by RA experts from the Malaysian SigRA in models (simulated patients). They will showcase common regional blocks performed in orthopaedic and general surgery according to site of surgery: shoulder, wrist, breast, abdominal surgery, hip, knee and foot. Various peripheral nerve blocks technique can be employed to the site specific surgery.

The delegates will get to ask the experts the rational in selecting the type of blocks and its alternatives. Animated sonoanatomy, 3D anatomy, dissected segment (graphic) plus current paper discussion will be incorporated in the session to enhance learning and experience.
