Block GuRU

Available now, the joint developed Block GuRU app ("Guidance for Regional Anesthesia using Ultrasound") brought to you by PAJUNK® and Birmingham University, United Kingdom.

The GuRU app offers various nerve blocks techniques of the upper limb, lower limb, trunk, and ankle. Each one can be viewed at five different levels:

A film based on a 3D model gives step-by-step commentary on each block. The visual combines 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.

The "Technical equipment" section shows which PAJUNK® instruments are used to perform the block.

The new GuRU app supports at a glance:
