1 credit hour CE

Minimally invasive procedures are quickly changing the healthcare landscape. Physicians have multiple arterial and venous access site options including radial, femoral, pedal, brachial or axillary access.

In this one-hour, ASRT-accredited course (US), technologists and nurses may receive CE credit for education about emerging hemostasis technologies and proper hemostasis management techniques, including traditional and non-traditional vascular access sites.

The following content is covered in this course:

Vascular Access Anatomy

  • Femoral, radial, brachial, axillary, pedal artery, and venous access
  • Advantages and disadvantages of access points

Anomalies and Pathologies

  • Aneurism
  • Severe tortuosity
  • Radial loop
  • High bifurcation
  • Atherosclerosis/calcification
  • Vasospasm
  • Hypoplasia


  • Clotting cascade (basic)
  • Hemostasis management including:
    • Vascular access site closure options
    • Invasive closure devices
    • Hospital Protocols


  • Retroperitoneal bleed
  • Hematoma
  • Thrombosis
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Pseudoaneurysm
  • Occlusion
  • Dissection
  • AV formation
Often patients will have a lasting impression on their hospital experience based on how well hemostasis was managed at the completion of their procedure
