List the advantages and disadvantages of the “In-Plane” and “Out-of-Plane” and the “Direct” vs. “Indirect” ultrasound-guided vascular access techniques
Differentiate venous vs. arterial anatomy by ultrasound
Identify ultrasound imaging characteristics of vessels and contiguous anatomy to determine the optimal approach for vascular access
Describe ultrasound imaging characteristics of vascular pathology that would indicate a vessel is not suitable for vascular access
Demonstrate the use of ultrasound guidance for Central Line vascular access
Demonstrate the use of ultrasound guidance for Peripheral Line vascular access
Demonstrate competence to incorporate protocols, scan techniques, and interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic/treatment accuracy
