There are many different tubes, lines and devices of the chest and these can often be difficult to interpret on x-ray. Knowledge of these devices and their correct placement is of vital importance to any student, healthcare professional and doctor who deals in x-ray interpretation, as noticing incorrect placement early can significantly impact the treatment and outcome of the patient.
The online lecture will discuss the main devices, such as NG tubes, central lines, PICC lines, chest drains, ET tubes and much more (including some rarer devices)! The lecture includes a dedicated Q&A session, along with a quiz to test what you’ve learned.
By the end of this event you should be able to:
Recognise the common tubes, lines and devices of the chest
Identify the correct position of these devices (including NG tubes)
Highlight incorrect positioning to clinicians
Recognise some of the common complications of tube, line and device insertion
This event is open to anyone with an interest/role in chest x-ray interpretation. This includes student radiographers/medical students, qualified radiographers, nurses, physios, junior doctors, and radiology registrars.
The event is fully endorsed as CPD by the Society and College of Radiographers.
