We over-CT well trauma patients but delay CT in big trauma. Know what to do before the CT, so as not to delay CT.

Needle extension tubing for nerve block.

One hand needs to position the ultrasound probe, one hand needs to guide the needle to exactly the right spot. You need a third hand to push the plunger on the syringe to deposit the local anesthetic; if you don't have a third hand, use a non-sterile assistant. There are fancy kits with ultrasound-opaque needles and tubing but if you don't got that, you can make your own using an IV tubing extension set.
