Ultrasound-Guided Central Line Course

Central line placement is indicated in patients who need hemodynamic monitoring, rapid volume resuscitation, therapies such as vasopressors, central parenteral nutrition and vesicant infusions and in patients with difficult venous access.

Ultrasound-Guided Central Line Placement

What you will Learn in the Ultrasound-Guided Central Line Course

The central line placement course will teach clinicians how to place subclavian lines, femoral lines, and ultrasound-guided IJ lines 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.  The course emphasizes ultrasound-guided vascular access.
