2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: C161-162
Presentation CE Credits: 1

Do you want better vascular assessment skills prior to inserting a vascular access device or use it in the care & maintenance phase to determine a problem?
Learn how to perform a full vascular pathway assessment and how it can help you and your patients in determining the most appropriate vessel for the required device incorporating the Catheter Vessel Ratio and Vessel Health & Preservation principles.
Do you look at the position of the surrounding anatomical structures, identify them then how they can be avoided to reduce complications?
Learn assessment of the pleura and how to determine if a pneumothorax may be present, both in the pre- and post-insertion phase.
If you said yes to any of these, then you SHOULD attend this session..
