Detailed Description

In recent years, regional anesthesia has become one of the most dynamic parts of anesthesiology. This is in part due to less invasive surgical procedures, surgical enhanced recovery protocols as well as the incorporation of ultrasonography into the daily practice of regional anesthesia. The aim of this retrospective survey is to track and analyse the changes in everyday practice of regional anesthesia in Poland that have occurred in the year 2018. An invitation to the survey will be sent to all heads of anesthesiology departments in Poland. The answers to the survey will be collected using an internet based website created by the authors of the study.
