Insertion PICCs with Ultrasound

Today’s technology is making the cost of portable ultrasounds ultra-affordable. Many hospitals have added portable ultrasound units to their IV team’s arsenal of tools for locating veins. Success rates for accessing veins have climbed steadily with the introduction of ultrasound.
Inserting PICCs with Ultrasound includes an actual insertion, from patient education to final pressure dressing on the completed insertion.
We highly recommend completing this program in conjunction with the Basic PICC Qualification Training Program.

CT Contrast Extravasation: Can it be Decreased ? (Recorded Webinar)

CT scans have altered medicine in many ways, resulting in less exploratory surgeries, better pathology diagnosis, and even changes in the way doctors practice medicine. But if CT scans offer several benefits for diagnosis, CT contrast extravasations may carry downsides, from compartment syndrome to tissue necrosis.

In this video, Dr. Ryan K. Lee talks about CT contrast extravasation, its definition and its implications, and provides tips and tricks to decrease it.
