Gulfcoast: Ultrasound-Guided Vascular Access



Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access Training Video is planned in accordance with the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ), ACEP, and WINFOCUS guidelines and is designed for medical professionals who perform central or peripheral line placement. This ultrasound training video combines a comprehensive review of many ultrasound guidance techniques. You will learn direct vs’ indirect techniques, as well as ultrasound vessel differentiation for central and peripheral line placement, and many others.


  • Fundamentals of UGVA
  • Why use Ultrasound Guidance?
  • Direct vs Indirect Techniques
  • In-plane vs’ Out of Plane Techniques
  • Principles of Vessel Differentiation and Procedural Tips
  • Ultrasound-Guided Central Line Placement
  • IJ, Axillary/Subclavian and Femoral Vein Access
  • Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Line Placement
  • Peripheral Line Placement
  • Antecubital vein access
  • Additional Access Sites
  • Pediatric Patient
  • Clinical Cases


  • Demonstrate the participant’s knowledge to better perform ultrasound-guided vascular access procedures.
  • Demonstrate proper transducer manipulation and system optimization to produce diagnostic images.
  • 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.


Physicians, mid-level providers, and nurses involved with performing vascular access for central and peripheral lines. Physician participants may include (but is not limited to) emergency, critical care, hospitalist, internal medicine, primary care.
