Interested in organising a seminar?

We're looking for new seminar material, both lecture and workshop based.

About this online seminar

The faculty aim to discuss the current best practice for central venous cannulation and post-insertion catheter care, as well as review the selection of appropriate catheters for the individual patient. We will also discuss optimisation of ultrasound imaging and guidance, to improve the safety of central venous cannulation.

Anaesthetists play an increasing role in the provision of long term access; we will provide video demonstrations of the placement of Hickman catheters and other long term devices, as well as best practice for fixation.

Central venous access is associated with a persistent and significant incidence of serious morbidity and occasional mortality. We will highlight some of the common short and long term complications and methods of prevention and treatment.

The provision of safe central venous access is important to patients. Anaesthetists are well placed to provide and lead central venous access services.
