Description provided by the Organizer

Upon completion of this activity the learner should be able to:

  • 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.
  • Cite 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.
