Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access Live Webinar provides participants a strong foundation to perform central and peripheral line techniques and approach in an emergency setting. This live webinar can be viewed on any computer, tablet or mobile device during the scheduled times and is taught by leading emergency medicine ultrasound experts that specialize in ultrasound guided procedures. The webinar incorporates comprehensive lectures and interactive case presentations featuring the ability to send in questions to be answered by the faculty during the live course presentation. Lifetime access to the digital course syllabus is also included in the tuition. This live webinar is specifically designed for physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals who need ultrasound-guided vascular access (UGVA) training and who may already have a source to provide them hands-on skills training (or for those that may just need a refresher course). This webinar is a live stream of the Live (1) Day Course that is being held at our facility in St. Petersburg, FL. Please note that this live webinar does NOT include Hand-On skills training, only the live streamed presentation. If you are in need of hands-on training, please look into the Live or Blended Vascular Access Courses offered by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute.
