    Ultrasound-Guided Vascular Access


    Fundamentals of UGVA (44 min.)

    • Fundamentals of UGVA
    • Why use ultrasound guidance?
    • Direct vs indirect techniques
    • In-plane vs out of plane techniques
    • Principles of vessel differentiation and procedural tips

    Ultrasound-Guided Central Line Placement (62 min.)

    • Ultrasound guided central line placement:
    • IJ, axillary/subclavian and femoral vein access

    Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Line Placement (47 min.)

    • Peripheral Line placement
    • Antecubital vein access
    • Additional access sites
    • Pediatric patient
    • Clinical cases
    • Ultrasound probe cover demonstration



    Upon completion of this enduring material, you should be able to accomplish the following:

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