This enduring material is designed to provide an introduction to the non-invasive evaluation of upper extremity arterial disease.
Sonographers physicians and other medical professional performing and/or interpreting non-invasive vascular testing for arterial disease. Participants may include, but are not limited to, those working in Radiology, Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Primary Care, Cardiology, General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Critical Care, and Emergency Medicine.
• Upper extremity arterial anatomy/physiology
• Atherosclerotic disease
• Evaluation of thoracic outlet
• Buerger's disease
• Vasospastic disorders such as Raynaud's syndrome
• Pre-operative assessment for radial artery harvest (CABG)or for hemodialysis access placement
Upon completion of this video activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:
1. Identify the upper extremity arterial anatomy and physiology
2. Implement routine protocols for performing upper extremity arterial evaluations
3. Recognize normal and abnormal arterial Doppler characteristics
4. Recognize ultrasound characteristics of digit occlusive disease and vasospastic disorders
5. Outline the pre-operative assessment for radial artery harvest for (CABG) or hemodialysis access placement
