Ultrasound Guided Peripheral IV Catheter Insertion
Infusion therapy standards of practice recommend visualization technology for the location and identification of blood vessels.
By attending this hands-on training program, attendees learn to visualize deep and difficult veins, determine the depth and size of veins, administer local anesthesia, and successfully insert peripheral catheters in one attempt.
This is a vital skill for clinicians working in the acute care settings, specifically in the ER, ICU, radiology, and pediatric units.
Who Should Attend this Ultrasound Guided Peripheral IV Insertion Program?
- Registered nurses (RNs) with basic venipuncture and peripheral catheter insertion skills
- Radiology technologists with basic venipuncture and peripheral catheter insertion skills
- Advance nurse practitioners, physician assistants and allied healthcare professionals with basic venipuncture and peripheral catheter insertion skills
