Ultrasound guidance increases the success rate and decreases the complications associated with vascular access. Patient care can be significantly improved if practitioners who perform vascular access know when and how to use ultrasound guidance and have the equipment available to do so. However, ultrasound guidance remains under utilized due to the training necessary to effectively implement this technology.

Research shows that a simulated setting is the most effective way to learn the techniques of ultrasound guidance. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute offers the most comprehensive hands-on Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access course available. Taught at our state-of-the-art facility in St. Petersburg, FL, this course is taught by leading emergency medicine ultrasound experts that specialize in ultrasound guidance. The course incorporates comprehensive lectures, interactive case presentations and hands-on scanning. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute is the continuing medical education scanning ratio leader offering only a 3:1 participant to faculty hands-on scan ratio with both live models for anatomy recognition and inanimate phantoms to practice interventional technique.

The Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access Live Training Course will provide you with a strong foundation to perform central and peripheral line techniques that you can immediately implement into clinical practice to improve patient care and outcomes.

Can’t join us for the Live Training Course? We also offer this course as a Live Webinar! Please note, the live webinar does not include the hands-on skills training so it is best for those who already have a source available to provide hands-on skills training or those in need of a refresher course.
