Also, consider going to one of the SVU Vascular Interpretation Skills Labs to see how others are handling the Vascular cases.  There is an introductory and an advanced track.  There is one February 25-27 in Orlando, FLA.  If it is too soon for members of your new group to go to this meeting, please stay I touch with the SVU website that Ann Marie lists and take advantage of future courses for you and the physicians.

HI,

I'd recommend checking out Davies Publishing as they have a Vascular Lab Policy & Procedure manual.  It is not cheap but it has a lot of the essentials you mentioned.  It is a good place to start as you can customize this and print your policy and procedure manual.  The SVU website, www.svunet.org<http://www.svunet.org/>,  has protocol info/practice standards.  Of course www.icavl.org<http://www.icavl.org/> has all the testing standards which should be followed.

There are a lot of good textbooks out there.  You could start on the SVU website again for some publication info.  Don't get a cheap exam table.  Get something that is height adjustable.  Take a look at some of the ads in the journals and also some of the folks that specialize in ergonomics.

This should get you some good starting material.

Ann Marie

Hi everybody!
I am currently working in the imaging department, but will be moving to work with the vascular surgeons in the next couple of months. We will be establishing the vascular lab. Everyone at our site including the surgeons is new to this. I would appreciate any input as to what is needed as far as books, articles, manuals, or anything to follow when we start the lab. The US machine we got is the GE Logiq. I do not know about the Vascular machine- I mean which one they will be getting. Also what kind of table you would suggest?  Any worksheets, templates for routine exams, protocols, policies, maintaining standards......Oh! My mind is in a jumble mumble right now with so many questions that keep popping every minute.
Please help.
Thank you!
XOXOXO
Taj
