Subclavian 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 central line placement and ultrasound-guided central line insertion.

Our subclavian 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.

How to Prevent and Manage Malpositioned Central Lines

Malpositioned central venous catheters occurs in about 7% of central line placements. A malpositioned central line is any central venous catheter where the tip is located anywhere other than the superior vena cava (SVC) for internal jugular lines or subclavian…

Simulation Based Training for Central Venous Catheters

Does Simulation Based Training Improve Central Line Success Rates? Simulation-based procedural training has become increasingly popular in academic medical centers and among medical trainees.  Limited data has suggested that simulation based training improves success rates and safety, but evidence has…

First Pass Success Rate is Better for Ultrasound-Guided Radial Artery Line Placement vs Palpation-Guided Placement

In 2015 a meta-analysis found that when an ultrasound was used during a radial arterial catheter placement the first pass success rate improved. In the eleven trials that met inclusion criteria over 800 patients were enrolled. Compared to the palpation-guided…
