Jonathan P. Kline, CRNA, M.S.N.A. is the director of education at Twin Oaks Anesthesia Services, founded by he and Deanna L. Kline, CRNA, DNP. As his career progressed, his passion for administering and teaching peripheral nerve blocks, and later ultrasound guidance, grew. He originally began teaching colleagues and students but noticed that techniques and technology were growing at an incredible rate, and began lecturing. He developed a two-course training method where participants could learn all the fundamentals of peripheral nerve blocks the first day, then return the second day to learn how to apply that foundation to ultrasound guidance. This allows for a comprehensive learning experience to participants.
Jonathan has been active in lecturing on the subjects of regional anesthesia and ultrasound techniques since 2006. He has lectured for multiple university anesthesia programs and state associations including his home association the Florida Association of Nurse Anesthetists. He has been active in national association presentations and workshops as well including the AANA on several occasions.
Jonathan has been active as an author for scholarly articles. He began the construction of his first article “The Use of Clevidipine for Intraoperative Hypertension Caused by an Undiagnosed Pheochromocytoma: A Case Report” in 2009. This appeared in the August 2010 edition of the AANA Journal. This article reported a novel approach (use of Clevidipine) to the control of hypertension during an acute catacholamine release by a pheochromocytoma. In 2011, the AANA Journal published his second article, focused on the use of ultrasound guidance in anesthesia. Much of it’s content is reflected in the text of the iBook "Peripheral Nerve Blocks and Ultrasound Guidance for the Anesthesia Provider," found in the iTunes store. In July of 2012, he had an additional two articles accepted for publication in the AANA Journal: “Ultrasound Guided Placement of Combined Superficial Cervical Plexus and Selective C-5 Nerve Root Catheters: A Novel Approach to Treating Distal Clavicle Surgical Pain,” appeared in the February 2013 edition of the AANA Journal. This article reports the first time that this strategic procedure has been completed using ultrasound guidance. His latest article titled “Detection of Pneumothorax using Ultrasound” was published in the August 2013 edition of the AANA Journal. This is a team approach in conjunction with Deanna Kline, Kevin Sullivan, David Dionisio, Josh Wolf, and Trey Early, all of whom are directly involved with Twin Oaks Anesthesia Services. A letter to the editor will appear in the 2013 November edition of the AANA Journal to round out his efforts.
He is currently an active clinician for Lakewood Ranch Anesthesia associates in Bradenton and Sarasota Florida. He is frequently consulted to assist and perform ultrasound pain management techniques for the various sites that contract the groups services for ultrasound guided techniques.
