This video was created by Dr Rosty Bezuhlyy and Dr Alex Jordanov. They made it in collaboration with our GHNHSFT eLearning team as part of a Quality Improvement Project (QIP). It shows how to perform a Biers Block safely using our lovely Biers Block machine. The video is designed for use alongside the GHNHSFT Biers Block Proforma which explains the indications, contraindications and drug doses in detail.
