Arterial Line Course

Arterial line placement is often necessary to monitor blood pressure in cases of septic shock and other causes of hypotension, hypertensive emergency and when frequent blood draws are required in intubated patients.  The arterial line placement course teaches clinicians how to place radial arterial lines, brachial arterial lines and femoral arterial lines.  Through hands-on practice using an advanced simulator, students will gain competence in arterial line insertion.

Our arterial line training is a component of our live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course which teaches clinicians how to perform the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards.

Do we really need to do a modified Allen’s Test before Radial Arterial Line Insertion?

by Joseph Esherick, M.D., FAAFP

This is further support that a pre-procedure modified Allen’s test is not a reliable predictor of ischemic complications for radial arterial line insertion and an abnormal Allen’s test should not be a contraindication to placing a radial arterial line.
