    The NYSORA LMS is the learning platform with all of NYSORA’s premium educational content, such as the Compendium of Regional Anesthesia, CME courses, ultrasound, MSK, and more. Accessible anywhere, on any device. To keep the content on free, the educational products on the NYSORA LMS are subscription-based.

    Think of the Compendium of Regional Anesthesia as a comprehensive guidebook on everything regional anesthesia from A to Z, including spinal, epidural, nerve blocks, ultrasound, perioperative management, ERAS protocols, and more.
    NYSORA’s Nerve Blocks Manual is, as the name implies, a collection of detailed descriptions of Nerve Block techniques, richly illustrated in a blend of art and medicine. However, it contains none of the neuraxial techniques and perioperative management featured in the Compendium.
    NYSORA’s Nerve Blocks app, on the other hand, is the most practical reference guide to ultrasound-guided nerve blocks. Think of it as NYSORA’s skinny version, made for use at the point of care.

    This is a tough one. We advise getting all three of them for a complete use, as they are not mutually exclusive. A more practical way to think about these three hugely popular educational products by NYSORA is:
    The Compendium serves as a large, comprehensive textbook.
    The Nerve Blocks Manual is, as suggested, a manual, with all things focusing only on nerve blocks.
    The Nerve Blocks app is a highly condensed, practical tool for use at point of care as a refresher and teaching.
    If you’re passionate and interested in all things regional anesthesia, you would benefit from all three.
