FUSE Vascular Access
CEIA Lvl 4 Ned Hanlon RBWH
Anaesthetists, intensive care, emergency department physicians and other medical staff who wish to learn how to use Point-of-Care (POC) vascular ultrasound-guided techniques.
Participants should allow 10-20 hours study time.
The Focused Ultrasound Simulator Education (FUSE) Vascular Access course offers venous or arterial cannulation to increase success and reduce the risk of complications by guidance with ultrasound. The course covers ultrasound-guided cannulation of central and peripheral veins (internal jugular, subclavian, femoral, PICC) and arteries (femoral, brachial and radial). The course provides a good knowledge-base reinforced with learning practical skills with realistic Blue Phantom ultrasound simulators.
