Arterial Line Course

Arterial line placement is often necessary to monitor blood pressure in cases of septic shock and other causes of hypotension, hypertensive emergency and when frequent blood draws are required.  The arterial line placement course teaches clinicians how to place radial arterial lines, brachial arterial lines and femoral arterial lines.  Through hands-on practice using an advanced simulator, students will gain competence in arterial line insertion.

The HPC Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures course will teach you how to perform arterial line placement in addition to endotracheal intubation, stylet-guided intubations, laryngeal mask airway (LMA) placement, King tube placement, fiberoptic intubations. ultrasound-guided central line placement, IO lines, ultrasound-guided peripheral IV, POCUS exams (RUSH exams and E-FAST exams), thoracentesis, paracentesis, lumbar punctures, chest tube placement, pigtail catheter placement, needle thoracostomy, procedural sedation, and ventilator management.

Our arterial line training is a component of our live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course which teaches clinicians how to perform the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards.
