Ultrasound Documentation

Bret’s Recommendation is to simply make IBEX Macros of the following:

1. ***ULTRASOUND GUIDANCE FOR VASCULAR ACCESS*** Ultrasound was used to assess potential access sites and guide needle placement for procedure in real time. Electronic images were saved.

[Use this for central venous access and peripheral venous access]

2. ***ULTRASOUND GUIDANCE FOR NEEDLE PLACEMENT*** Ultrasound was used to assess target anatomy and guide needle placement for procedure. Electronic images were saved.

[Use this for: abscess I&D, arthrocentesis, bladder aspiration, lumbar puncture, foreign body removal, or any other procedure]

3. ***ULTRASOUND GUIDANCE FOR PERICARDIOCENTESIS*** Ultrasound was used to assess target anatomy and guide needle placement for procedure. Electronic images were saved.
