The specialty of vascular access is inherently visual. The advanced practitioner must be familiar with anatomic landmarks, sonographic neuro and vascular visualization, fluoroscopy and EKG identification. Many inserters develop their own modifications to practice. These modifications may be helpful tips for others to improve their practice. The international panel will present five or six short videos during this sixty minute session. Hopefully, the audience will find the videos to be interesting and possibly performance improving.
