This workshop was designed to teach the skill of needle identification under ultrasound guidance to facilitate many of the procedures that are performed in acute care and primary care settings. With brief, high-yield lectures and a focus on hands-on practice, learners will gain confidence in peripheral and central venous cannulation, soft tissue foreign body identification and retrieval, differentiation between cellulitis and abscess on POCUS, shoulder and knee joint identification to facilitate arthrocentesis or joint injection, and upper and lower extremity nerve identification for ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia. 

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Demonstrate confidence in needle identification under ultrasound guidance with both out-of-plane and in-plane techniques
⦁ Explain the utility of POCUS in evaluating for the presence of soft tissue abscess and how this contrasts with findings of cellulitis under POCUS
⦁ Identify soft tissue foreign bodies and demonstrate proper technique in ultrasound-guided foreign body retrieval
⦁ Obtain quality images of the shoulder and knee joints and demonstrate proper technique in order to perform ultrasound-guided arthrocentesis and joint injection
⦁ Identify target nerves in the upper and lower extremities, demonstrate proper technique in performing regional anesthesia, and understand the complication of local anesthetic systemic toxicity
