We will explore improved care efficiency and patient satisfaction with ultrasound guidance for difficult PIV insertions, identify challenges, and review a collaborative approach for initiating implementation.
Davinder Ramsingh, MD, Director of Perioperative Ultrasound and Clinical Research, Department of Anesthesiology at Loma Linda Medical Center will discuss perioperative point-of-care ultrasound with a focus on airway management, and how point-of-care ultrasound can help facilitate the identification and localization of the endotracheal tube within the trachea. He will review background information on endotracheal intubation, define point-of-care ultrasound, and relate this information to case studies. He will also discuss the FORESIGHT examination.
Alexis LaPietra, D.O. presents novel medications and modalities for the management of acute pain in the emergency department. She discusses ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and its importance in managing the pain associated with fractures and dislocations. Additionally, she presents evidence to support the use of trigger point injections and a multi-modal analgesic approach for musculoskeletal pain.
Join our expert for a live demonstration of the new Assisted Cardiac Output (ACO), an innovative new feature of Sonosite PX point-of-care ultrasound system. Learn more about the advantages of using ACO to evaluate your patients more quickly by removing steps and complexity from the manual CO workflow.
The new definition of sepsis (aka "Sepsis 3.0") as well as Center for Medicare Services sepsis bundle have been unveiled. Dr. Alan Chiem from Olive View-UCLA Medical Center will use clinical vignettes to discuss the new definition of sepsis, the proposed methods to assess fluid responsiveness, and how ultrasound may be used in the management of these patients. Dr. Chiem will specifically focus on the nuts and bolts of performing these ultrasound-based techniques, as well as how to perform a passive leg raise. Webinar Goals and Objectives: 1.
Intussusception is a common cause of pediatric abdominal pain in the infant and toddler population. Using point-of-care ultrasound at the bedside can help providers expedite definitive management with greater safety, ease and accuracy than plain radiographs; that’s why POCUS has become a standard tool for evaluating patients with suspected ileocolic intussusception.
Join Adrienne Barrett, RN, as she provides an overview of how to perform an ultrasound-guided cannulation in the hemodialysis unit including identifying anatomy on the ultrasound screen, overcoming potential barriers to adopting this skill set, and how to add ultrasound to the “tool box” used by hemodialysis nurses.
