Femoral Line Course

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 veins, internal jugular veins 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. The course emphasizes ultrasound-guided vascular access

The HPC Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures course will teach you how to perform central line placement in addition to endotracheal intubation, stylet-guided intubations, laryngeal mask airway (LMA) placement, King tube placement, or fiberoptic intubationsultrasound-guided peripheral IV access, arterial lines, 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 central line placement 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.
