Block Buddy

What is Block Buddy? Simple. Block Buddy is a healthcare provider’s new best friend.

Our app, Block Buddy Pro, is a mobile reference tool for healthcare providers performing ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks, point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) and non-surgical pain management (NSPM) procedures. The app contains descriptions of over 35 blocks, several NSPM procedures, 80+ videos, and hundreds of medical illustrations and ultrasound images.  Additional information and resources contained within the app includes: the basics of ultrasound, joint innervation, nerve plexuses, nociceptive pathways, POCUS, spine and pelvis anatomy, antiplatelets and anticoagulants, non-opioid medications, and local anesthetics.  Content within the app is frequently updated to give users the best experience with the most up-to-date information. It’s like having a medical textbook with you wherever you go – only it’s easier to search and takes up a lot less space.

The creators of Block Buddy, Jeff Molter and Scott Urigel, are practicing Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) with a passion for people and patient care. Jeff and Scott are committed to improving the lives of patients and to increasing the knowledge of their peers. They bring years of experience and a wealth of knowledge to every conference, workshop and patient interaction.
