Supraclavicular Nerve Block

After completion of the Supraclavicular Nerve Block course, participants should be able to: identify the subclavian artery and nerve trunks, ribs, and pleura, as well as describe the needle placement and injection technique used for the supraclavicular nerve block.


Ultrasound-Guided Dialysis (English Only)

Point-of-care ultrasound is a powerful tool for cannulation. As the demographic of the average hemodialysis patient changes, the prevalence of difficult to cannulate vascular accesses increases. This course describes the technique of dialysis cannulation from equipment set-up, patient positioning, and securing the cannula to anatomical variables and pathology.

Ultrasound Guided Paracentesis

Ultrasound-Guided Paracentesis

After completing the Ultrasound-Guided Paracentesis course, viewers should be able to explain the basic outline of ultrasound-guided paracentesis, including: methods for image optimization, ideal equipment selections and settings, identification of abdominal anatomy frequently encountered during paracentesis, and the most common procedural steps involved in performing an ultrasound-guided paracentesis.


Ultrasound-Guided Thoracentesis

The Ultrasound-Guided Paracentesis course provides a basic outline of ultrasound-guided thoracentesis, including methods for image optimization, ideal ultrasound equipment settings (including transducer selection), identification of anatomical structures, and the most common procedural steps involved in performing an ultrasound-guided thoracentesis.

Wrist Ultrasound

Wrist (English Only)

This course provides an overview of the basics when evaluating the wrist. This does not provide a comprehensive protocol. Users should confer with their medical society for appropriate criteria for the performance of these ultrasound examinations. This course will review the dorsal and volar view of each structure in the wrist starting with the cortical surface landmarks, soft tissue synovial anatomy, extensor tendons, and neurovascular structures on the volar surface such as the carpal tunnel.
