Paracentesis Course

Paracentesis is a procedure to aspirate ascitic fluid from the peritoneal cavity. A diagnostic paracentesis can be performed for to determine the etiology of ascites or a therapeutic paracentesis can be performed for symptomatic ascites.  The paracentesis course uses advanced ultrasound-compatible simulators and Caldwell needles to train clinicians how to perform an ultrasound-guided paracentesis.  This course also covers ascitic fluid analysis, the management of refractory ascites, diuretic-resistant ascites, and how to manage paracentesis complications.
