Procedural Ultrasound

Peripheral Vascular Access

Learning US Guided Procedures

ultrasound guided procedures


So if you want to learn how to do ultrasound guided procedures, I'd recommend you start with peripheral venous access. These tend to be small vessels, and if you can access these well, then other procedures become easy. In fact, the clip on the right here shows IJ access, itโ€™s a pretty large vessel and that's actually quite simple once you can access the much smaller peripheral veins. I would estimate it takes about 30 peripheral IVs using US guidance to get really good at it and would recommend that you try to use the single person dynamic guidance where you're actually watching the tip of the needle go into that vessel in real time.
