Anesthesiology Exam2

Inferior Alveolar Block- Standard Technique. NEEDLE 25 LONG
Inferior Alveolar Block- Standard Technique. DEPTH 20-25mm
Inferior Alveolar Block- Standard Technique. DISTRIBUTION Ipsilateral teeth, periosteum, alveolar bone
Inferior Alveolar Block- Standard Technique. TARGET Into the pterygomandibular space. behind lingula and right above mandibular foramen into the mandibular sulcus on the coronoid process.
Inferior Alveolar Block- Standard Technique. PATHWAY Palpate coronoid notch at deepest concavity with thumb. Insert needle along the bisecting line of the thumb. This will pierce the buccinator muscle.
Inferior Alveolar Block- Standard Technique. CONTACT? YES- Bony Contact
Inferior Alveolar Block- Standard Technique. OTHER Often fail because inject too low. If patient has class III malocclusion, inject 1 cm above bisecting line. Has high rate of positive aspiration.

Infraorbital Nerve Block. TARGET Infraorbital nerve foramen (1 cm below infraorbital notch on the infraorbital margin)
Infraorbital Nerve Block. PATH Inject lateral to apex of 2PM
Infraorbital Nerve Block. DISTRIBUTION ASA (CI, LI, C), MSA (1PM, 2PM, MB root of 1M), inferior palpebral (lower eyelid), lateral nasal (side of nose), superior labial (upper lip), buccal gingiva. NOT Molars!
Greater Palatine. NEEDLE 27 short
