Venous Treatment: Anesthesia and Techniques

SKU:
STANDARDCOURSE-160

Please login or register to take this course.

The endovenous thermal ablation procedure is the standard for treatment of chronic superficial truncal venous disease.  While highly effective, it often does not fully treat the patient suffering from chronic venous insufficiency.  This package is designed especially for the phlebologist and covers many of the treatments often performed concomitantly with thermal ablation.  The primary author, John Mauriello, is one of the most widely respected phlebologists in the world and is responsible for developing and refining many of these procedures.  This is also highly useful information for the sonographer assisting in the treatment room.

Anesthesia for Office-Based Vein Procedures

SKU:
STANDARDCOURSE-133

Please login or register to take this course.

Traditionally, venous interventions were carried out in the hospital often under general anesthesia. Advances in technology have transformed many of these procedures which can now be safely carried out in an office setting. These interventions are typically performed under local anesthesia which when performed properly can be safely carried out. Nonetheless, a thorough knowledge base is required in order to minimize the inherent that persist with any anesthesia. Dr. Mauriello is past president of the American College of Phlebology, and is uniquely and eminently qualified to speak on this subject given his background in anesthesia coupled with nearly 3 decades of exclusive phlebology practice. Additionally, the sonographer can aid in this realm providing imaging to guide the anesthesia as well imaging of adjacent nerves.

Course Objectives

  • Define the types of local anesthesia
  • Learn commonly used anesthetics, typical dosage, and method of action
  • Review potential allergic or adverse reaction to various anesthetics
  • Learn optimal administration techniques
  • Review recommended monitoring for various types of anesthesia
  • Recognize the signs of toxicity
