Don’t Believe Everything You Hear About PNBs

Some argue that peripheral nerve blocks (PNBs) have too many setbacks to make them a viable option for post-operative pain management. Others disagree. Brian Williams, MD, and Steven Orebaugh, MD, take a stab at “Dispelling 8 Peripheral Nerve Block Myths,” in the January 2009 online edition of Outpatient Surgery magazine. The article refers to another informative article, “The Economics of Peripheral Nerve Blocks,” featured in the March 2008 online edition of Outpatient Surgery.

    You have an article in AAPC news, with a link to another publication that can not be accessed. Why?
    How is this helpful?

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t get this. Seems this was more a sales tactic than an actual, helpful, educational piece. Just my opinion

    TACKY……AT LEAST THE OTHER WEBSITE DID NOT ASK FOR MONEY……..BUT UNACCESSIBLE…I AM THINKING IT IS THE “SALUTATION” HEADER STOPPING US FROM ACCESSING THE INFORMATION, IT DOES NOT HAVE ANY CHOICES, YET SAYS YOU MUST MARK SOMETHING. NOTICING THAT THIS HAS NOT BEEN CORRECTED YET, AT THIS LATE DATE AFTER THE EDGEBLAST WAS POSTED SHOWS NOBODY IS READING THE COMMENTS WE ARE MAKING……..HHHHHHHHMMMMMMM………

    I am somewhat frustrated here as a fairly new coder for an anesthesiologist who does nerve blocks, I would sure have liked to read that article….
