Peripheral intravenous line placement is within the scope of Registered Respiratory Therapists (RRTs) in the state of Texas, the RRTs at UT Southwestern (UTSW) had not been trained to perform this procedure. This project was developed to:

1) Provide a “no blind stick” approach to vascular access

2) Facilitate RRTs to work to the full extent of their licensure

3) Offer the bedside nurse an additional trained resource in vascular access.

- Stacey Cutts BS, RRT, VA-BC


This four-hour workshop will include prework and hands-on simulation training. The simulation training will included ultrasound assessment, needling techniques with the use of ultrasound, arterial, and venous peripheral device insertion.
