Event Overview
Welcome message:

The success of real-time, ultrasound-guided insertion of needles for regional anesthetic administration and peripheral and central vascular line insertion over all other methods of identifying/verifying the anatomical target prior to cannulation and/or injection has been documented repeatedly through recent years.

Ultrasound offers a non-invasive, low risk safety factor whose benefits to quality of care, reduction in complications (both realized and expected), and the relative improvement in patient confidence and satisfaction with the techniques has heralded the techniques as standard-of-care for the future, especially in challenging patients in the hands of inexperienced or infrequent users. In fact, it has been suggested that morbidity resulting from insertion may be legally indefensible in the absence of the use of these devices.

This workshop is intended for the practitioner already possessing skill and experience with regional anesthetic administration and/or peripheral and central vascular cannulation who wish instruction and the opportunity to handle the equipment for these procedures and instructor - assisted practice identifying anatomy and procuring the ergonomic skill of managing the equipment while performing the techniques.
