Central Venous Access Hands on Training
Interns of KIMS were trained by Dr. Ashok Kumar Badamali and Dr. Jyoti Ranjan Parida, Assistant Professor of Cardiac Anesthesia, in central venous access. This is a life saving and useful skill practice for interns and junior doctors when a normal peripheral venous access is not possible in patients of trauma, cancer patient on chemotherapy, requirement of massive fluid or blood loss, parenteralnutrition, kidney failure patients on dialysis, and critically ill patients requiring medication to maintain blood pressure and heart rate. The training was going on for 3 days in 9 slots. The hands on training in task trainer improves the skill of physicians so that they perform better while treating actual patients.
