Event Description

The Blended Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access Course includes comprehensive online lectures and extensive hands-on scanning for central and peripheral line placement. This blended vascular access ultrasound hands-on course/program incorporates 15 months access to lectures in an online course format and a full day hands-on scanning workshop, featuring a 3:1 ratio with live models and inanimate phantoms.

Topics

  • Fundamentals of UG Vascular Access
  • “Direct” vs. “Indirect” Techniques
  • “In-plane” vs. “Out-of-plane” Techniques
  • Ultrasound Guided Central Line Placement
  • Principles of Vessel Differentiation
  • Internal Jugular & Axillary/Subclavian Approach
  • Femoral, Antecubital Vein Access
  • Additional Access Sites & Comments on the Pediatric Patient
  • Clinical Case Review

 

Objectives

  • Demonstrate the participant’s knowledge to better perform ultrasound-guided vascular access procedures.
  • Demonstrate proper transducer manipulation and system optimization to produce diagnostic images.
  • List the advantages and disadvantages of the “In-Plane” and “Out-of-Plane” and the “Direct” vs. “Indirect” ultrasound-guided vascular access techniques.
  • Differentiate venous vs. arterial anatomy by ultrasound.
  • Identify ultrasound imaging characteristics of vessels and contiguous anatomy to determine the optimal approach for vascular access.
  • Demonstrate ultrasound imaging characteristics of vascular pathology that would indicate a vessel is not suitable for vascular access.
  • Demonstrate the use of ultrasound guidance for Central Line vascular access.
  • Demonstrate the use of ultrasound guidance for Peripheral Line vascular access.
  • Demonstrate competence to incorporate protocols, scan techniques, and interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic/treatment accuracy.
