The Vascular Access Course is designed for anyone involved in vascular access. This course will teach you how to use ultrasound to improve your success rates and improve patient care when placing lines, both central and peripheral. We cover the basics of ultrasound and line placement with ultrasound and then spend a great deal of time in lab placing lines in multiple different types of phantoms. Models are also used to practice identifying the anatomy and landmarks.
The course will be located at the Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter which is ideally located in the heart of downtown San Diego's historic and vibrant Gaslamp Quarter. The Gaslamp Quarter offers the very best of San Diego shopping, dining, entertainment and cultural activities. We have secured sleeping rooms at a discounted rate of $219/night for participants of 3rd Rock Ultrasound. The hotel will offer complimentary internet access in the lobby as well as guest room.
