PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

US approach for all nerve blocks

US technique changed the way I do blocks. For the last 2 years I have been using only US to do the blocks and I would not dare do a block without prior visualization. I think not only the block is faster in onset and more intense but also the risk of side effects is lower. I do pediatric anesthesia and I am capable of doing a pediatric block very fast and efficient with US
