You likely encounter your fair share of patients with tough-to-access veins, resulting in multiple needle sticks and, sometimes, central venous catheterization. Neither is fun for patients or medical personnel. Difficult venous access creates a painful experience for patients, frustration for care providers, and delays in care.
But a solution is within your reach: ultrasound guidance for venous access. Join expert speaker Dr. Bret Nelson as he acquaints you with this feasible, preferable technique for venous challenges. This webinar will review simple strategies for incorporating ultrasound guidance into your practice, whether you’re a physician, PA, NP, or other care provider who must obtain venous access and improve patient care.
Dr. Nelson will walk you through the nuts-and-bolts of this valuable technique, from managing the controls on the ultrasound machine, to using ultrasound to define the anatomy and best potential venous access sites. You will learn which equipment to set up and how to choose the proper catheter, as well as how to guide a needle to its target using ultrasound.
After attending this webinar, you will be better able to assess patients for difficult venous access, and then safely and quickly gain intravenous access—without multiple needle sticks and costly errors. If you’re not familiar with using ultrasound for venous access, you will gain a powerful new tool to deal with some of your most challenging and vulnerable patients. You’ll also add a skill set to your practice that is highly sought after by patients and employers alike!
