Ultrasound-Guided Vascular Access

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

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.
