Location: C170
Presentation CE Credits: 1 for two (2) 30-min Breakouts

Arterial catheters are the most frequently manipulated catheter once inserted to our patients as they are commonly used for all blood draws(arterial and venous) and blood sugar checks. They are a constant monitor of our patient’s blood pressure making them vital for the titration of life sustaining drugs. This presentation’s aim is to aid the clinician in becoming more familiar with arterial catheter insertion, care and maintenance. The clinician will be presented with the following topics of discussion:
• Arterial Line Indications and Contradictions
• Insertion Techniques and site selection
• Incorporation of ultrasound for vessel identification and catheter insertion
• Daily maintenance and troubleshooting techniques
