We are sure that you are already familiar with our GuRU app ("Guidance for Regional Anaesthesia using Ultrasound"). We have now developed supports for this joint project between PAJUNK® and Birmingham University. These are available for download as of now.
The GuRU app itself deals with various one-off nerve blocks of the upper and lower limbs and of the trunk. Each one can be used at five different levels:
|A film based on a 3D model gives step-by-step commentary on each block, with visual support combining real film, anatomical animations and ultrasound images.|
|In anatomical terms, the block is localised using a detailed drawing and description.|
|The progress of each block is described in detail, with real images from the operating theatre and ultrasound images.|
|One of the real benefits of this app are the handy tips on each type of block. Here you will also find the “Choice of local anaesthetic agent” – an overview of the available medication, dosage, duration and onset time.|
The new GuRU app supports at a glance:
|Poster for upper limb blocks:
To help you use the app, you can download a poster from our home page that gives a detailed explanation of upper limb blocks. You will find information on indications, ultrasound images, detailed guidance on localisation and useful tips.
In near future, the posters can be ordered as print version.
You can already download the preview PDFs under the following links.
Upper Limb (Z9030194)
Lower Limb (Z9030201)
You can download the print data of the posters here, for local production.
|E-Cath video in the password-protected section of the website:
E-Cath is a puncture set used to perform continuous peripheral nerve blocks. It is as easy to use as the single-shot technique, and the catheter can be inserted by one person in just a few steps. The password-protected section of our website contains a video which presents the set and demonstrates visibility under ultrasound.
