Discussion on helpful scanning techniques and anatomy landmarks used to perform an Axillary Vein Cannulation. Topics: patient and transducer position, identification of structures near the vein, vein depth, & insertion technique.
This video (part 1 of 2) details how the use of bedside ultrasound for placing central venous catheters can reduce the number of puncture attempts, increase patient safety, and increase procedural efficiency.
This video (part 2 of 2) details how to use bedside ultrasound imaging to map the anatomy and orientation of the internal jugular vein, as well as determine puncture point, needle depth, and needle trajectory during central venous cannulation.
Use ultrasound imaging to help identify deep and nonpalpable veins that can accommodate the placement of an IV catheter. Doppler color flow is used to differentiate the brachial artery from other anatomical structures.
Use ultrasound imaging to identify anatomy prior to intravenous catheter needle punctures, verify needle depth, and use dynamic techniques for attaining optimal needle guidance during deep vein cannulation & IV placement.
