6:30-8:30 PM Mini Workshop: Ultrasound-Guided Vascular Access Optional Workshop (Fee Required)
Workshop Director:
Daniel Vo, MD
Faculty: Nelson Burbano- Vera, MD, Andrea Gomez Morad, MD

At the conclusion of this workshop participants will become familiar with the basic concept of the ultrasound technique, settings optimization, ultrasound anatomy, and the technique of ultra-sound guided cannulation. A 30-minute lecture will be targeted at those with minimal ultrasound experience while the majority of the workshop will allow hands-on training identifying landmarks and targets on live pediatric models and practice cannulation on synthetic simulators.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the basic concept of the ultrasound technique, basic physics, and the use of appropriate transducers.
  2. Identify the most useful vessels for cannulation in difficult IV patients.
  3. Practice the technical skills of in-plane and out-of-plane ultrasound-guided cannulation.
