On This Episode:
Today we welcome in two more guests as part of our doctoral series, and we’re looking forward to talking with Annie Brademeyer, CRNA and Amanda Janssen, CRNA about their recent study: “Does inserting peripheral nerve catheters over the needle decrease leaking from its insertion site?” Join us as we review their work and find out what they learned about a surprisingly controversial topic.
They submitted their work to our Doctoral Committee headed up by Sandy Ouellette and Nancy Bruton-Maree, and this is a subject we haven’t really covered before. Both ladies do a great job taking us through everything and explaining what this could mean for these continuous peripheral nerve catheters in the future with the new local anesthetics we have.
Here are some of the things you’ll learn on this show:
- What are some of the problems that are encountered by clinicians who place these peripheral nerve catheters?
- The different insertion method of over the needle and through it, and what impact that has on leaking.
- The challenges they faced in doing this study.
- What they found out about pain scores.
- Why they need more randomized controls to get more clarity on the topic.
- The need for these continuous peripheral nerve catheters moving forward.
