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.
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.
Dianne DuToit, Clinical Nurse Consultant presents Dialysis Vascular Access Flow Volume: Ultrasound Measurement of Blood Flow Volume in Dialysis Arteriovenous Fistulas and Grafts. She describes blood flow volume monitoring benefits, reviews ultrasound anatomy of Arteriovenous Fistulas (AVF) and Arteriovenous Grafts (AVG), discusses ultrasound volumen flow monitoring, reviews the equipment and software used, describes color and PW Doppler, reviews how to perform the volume flow calculation, and discusses results and clinical pearls.
Dr. Stephen Haskins presents the emerging role of focused cardiac ultrasound as a powerful tool for the anesthesiologist in the perioperative setting. He discusses how point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) changes the way patients should be evaluated, and how medical decisions are made. He highlights ultrasound as a change agent for the future of the physical exam, and explains how technology has the ability to rapidly bridge the education and experience gap in medicine. Dr.
Professor Martin Zoremba, MD is the Director of Anesthesia, Intensive Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Pain Therapy at Siegen District Hospital in Germany. In this webinar, Dr. Zoremba reviews the basic principles of hemodynamics in point-of-care, discusses Transthoracic Echo (TTE) as an indicative tool, outlines the important measurements and indicative signs, and introduces a rational hemodynamic algorithm.
Felipe Teran, MD, Emergency Physician from the Division of Emergency Ultrasound Center for Resuscitation Science Department at the University of Pennsylvania presents Part 2 of Implementing Transesophageal (TEE) in the Emergency Department. This webinar focuses on the nuts and bolts of training options for learning TEE ultrasound, discusses credentialing and institutional privileging for the practice of point-of-care TEE, and reviews main resources available for learning and training in TEE.
