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.
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.
Stephen Leech, MD, RDMS, Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Director, Orlando Regional Medical Center, Orlando, FL - Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) has emerged as a valuable tool in the hands of skilled operators; especially in acute care and life saving environments. This webinar will review a variety of scenarios and case studies where the availability of POCUS proved invaluable in the diagnosis and management toward positive patient outcomes.
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.
