Cannulation of veins and arteries is an important aspect of patient care for the administration of fluids and medications and for monitoring purposes.

The use of Ultrasound in Vascular Access enhances the safety of Vascular Punctures. Not only, by decreasing failed puncture attempt rates but also the complications and costs of this medical approach.

Which ultrasound scanner do doctors use for Vascular Access?

The use of the appropriate ultrasound probe reduces catheter placement failure rates and the relative risk of mechanical complications.

These complications may occur more often with less experienced operators, challenging patient anatomy (obesity, cachexia, distorted, tortuous or thrombosed vascular anatomy, congenital anomalies such as persistent left superior vena cava), compromised procedural settings (mechanical ventilation or emergency), and the presence of comorbidity (coagulopathy, emphysema)….

For the goal of making this operation easier, we’ve developed devices to stabilize the angle of the needle insertion into the skin. The color doppler portable ultrasound scanner SIFULTRAS-5.34 works in a way that the needle level touches the ultrasound beam in a pre-established depth.

The supplemental use of color flow Doppler to confirm presence and direction of blood flow requires an understanding of the mechanisms and limitations of Doppler color flow analysis and display.

The use of an ultrasound scanner reduces complications and vascular puncture costs as well as increasing the procedure’s success rate. Hence, it is a vital equipment in the routine practice of this procedure.

Vascular access procedures are most often performed by a specially trained interventional radiologist in an interventional radiology suite or occasionally in the operating room.
