Central line placement is indicated in patients who need hemodynamic monitoring, rapid volume resuscitation, therapies such as vasopressors and hypertonic saline and in patients with difficult venous access. The central line placement course will teach clinicians how to place central venous catheters in the subclavian, internal jugular and femoral veins using advanced simulation manikins. The course covers central venous access indications, contraindications, preparation, technique, complications and their management. Techniques for triple lumen, cordis and hemodialysis catheters will be taught. The course will cover both landmark-based femoral line placement and ultrasound-guided central line insertion.
Our femoral 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.
