  • 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 procedures.
  • Identify ultrasound imaging characteristics of vessels and contiguous anatomy to determine the optimal approach for vascular access.
  • Cite 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 and Peripheral Line vascular access.
  • List the advantages of using ultrasound-guided nerve block techniques.
  • Demonstrate imaging techniques for performing ultrasound-guided upper and lower extremity regional anesthesia nerve blocks.
  • Perform PECC and TAP blocks using ultrasound guidance.
  • Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, scan techniques, diagnostic/treatment accuracy and interpretation criteria to integrate the skills learned into clinical practice.
