This is a single center, randomized, controlled trial in which tunneled central line catheters will be placed in two distinct, select positions. The catheter tip position will then be foll...
The use of ultrasound is becoming widespread to guide the placement of arterial lines for both vascular access and regional anesthesia in the field of anesthesia. Arterial line placement ...
This study aims to compare the time difference between radial arterial line placement and use of the EndoPhys sheath, as well as, assess the cost effectiveness of the EnoPhys sheath vs. us...
Invasive blood pressure monitoring is achieved by cannulating an artery and transducing the pressure. During arterial cannulation the artery can be located by palpation, but use of ultraso...
Obtaining intravenous access (IVA) is the most common procedure performed in the emergency department (ED). Placement of IVA allows for blood work and delivery of intravenous fluids and me...
Vascular access is a necessary prerequisite for REBOA placement in patients with severe hemorrhagic shock.
Ultrasound guided peripheral intravenous catheters (USPIV) are frequently utilized in the Emergency Department (ED) and lead to reduced central venous catheter (CVC) placements. USPIVs, however, are r...
Arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) are the preferred vascular access type in most hemodialysis patients. However, the optimal vascular access type in octogenarians and older (≥80 years) hemodialysis pa...
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is typically performed with vascular access provided by the radial or femoral artery. However, little is known about how patients value aspects of these differ...
Endovascular treatment of arterial diseases has become first-line in most cases due to improved technology. However, until recently, excessive atherosclerotic calcification has been a major limiting f...
Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.
Devices to be inserted into veins or arteries for the purpose of carrying fluids into or from a peripheral or central vascular location. They may include component parts such as catheters, ports, reservoirs, and valves. They may be left in place temporarily for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
Single pavement layer of cells which line the luminal surface of the entire vascular system and regulate the transport of macromolecules and blood components from interstitium to lumen; this function has been most intensively studied in the blood capillaries.
Complication of CHOLELITHIASIS characterized by OBSTRUCTIVE JAUNDICE; abdominal pain, and fever.
