Pediatric Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access Course
This workshop covers essential topics in pediatric vascular access, including the selection and use of common vascular devices. Participants will gain insights into guidelines for choosing the appropriate device types. The Difficult Vascular Access (DIVA) score and related guidelines will be defined to address challenging cases effectively. Ultrasound scanning principles, both in-plane and out-of-plane, are fundamental skills participants will acquire for ultrasound-guided peripheral venous and arterial access. Additionally, the program equips participants with expertise in ultrasound-guided central access, offering a comprehensive understanding of complications and their management in pediatric vascular access procedures
By the end of this program, participant will be able to:
1- Explore vascular devices commonly used in pediatric patients.
2- Recognize guidelines for the proper selection of the vascular device type.
3- Define difficult vascular access DIVA score & guidelines.
4- Understand basics of US scanning principles including in plane & out of plane.
5- US guided peripheral venous & arterial access.
6- US guided different sites and types of central access
7- Demonstrate an understanding of the complications encountered in central or peripheral vascular access insertion in pediatric cases and its management
