Ultrasound for Hypotension and Vascular Access Workshop 2019

October 24, 2019

The goal of this workshop is for clinicians to rapidly assess patients with hypotension, as well as learn the skills to safely and effectively perform ultrasound-guided vascular access. The primary focus of this workshop will be learning to adequately image the abdomen for free fluid, the lower extremities for evidence of DVT, the aorta for aneurysm, and learning to perform ultrasound-guided central and peripheral venous cannulation.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, NPs, RNs
