Description

This Ultrasound Troubleshooting Tips and Tricks program was developed to teach techniques that increase insertion success rates using ultrasound guidance for PICC insertions. Performing an ultrasound guided insertion takes practice and patience. Once the skill is mastered, the clinician can safely and accurately access patient's vasculature, providing better outcomes for the patient.

Topics reviewed in this program include:

Probe management
Probe pressure
Importance of gel
Controlling the cable
Screen orientation
Needle control/insertion angle
Following the needle tip during insertion

This program assumes the clinician is already familiar with an ultrasound unit and is currently using ultrasound guidance for PICC insertions
