Vascular Access Check Tool

The ESRD Network Coordinating Council has prepared a resource called “It Only Takes a Minute to Check Your Patient’s Lifeline” that guides a practitioner through the process of verifying that a patient’s vascular access is functioning as it should, and not becoming a source of problems.  Find the tool at http://www.esrdncc.org/index/professionals-lifeline-for-a-lifetime.  Click on each box in the flow diagram to see the background details and links to resources that support the overview illustrations.  The package looks deceptively simple, but the threads behind it are extensive.
