US Guided Vascular Access

In collaboration with vascular access and medical physics, Joe created a course at the Royal Berks to teach non-POCUS users how to put in cannulas and take bloods under ultrasound guidance. This consists of a 30 minute theory lecture followed by 45 minutes of practical using ‘phantoms’, then a number of supervised and unsupervised scans before the candidate is signed off by the vascular access team.
