This program will describe peripheral arterial lines, including rationale for their use, equipment needed for their cannulation, and pre- and post-placement assessments. In addition, setting a hemodynamic monitoring system will be both demonstrated and explained, with a focus on zeroing and calibrating the equipment as well as recognizing the different types of waveforms. Upon completion of this program, the learner will be able to: Demonstrate how to perform an Allen test Cite reasons why peripheral arterial lines are used Describe each of the four components of a hemodynamic monitoring system Demonstrate the tubing, IV pump, and monitor set-up for a patient with a peripheral arterial line Explain how to zero the line Define phlebostatic axis List nursing assessments for a patient with a peripheral arterial line Compare and Contrast normal, dampened, and under damped waveforms Outline complications associated with peripheral arterial lines and how nurses can both prevent and manage them.
