Knowledge in access to the definitive and vascular peripheral aerial of prehospital care students

Palabras clave: Peripheral vascular pathway, Prehospital care, Students, Intubation protocols


We evaluated the knowledge of access to the definitive airway and peripheral vascular of the Technologists in Prehospital Care in training, through a knowledge questionnaire. The sample was applied to the 84 students enrolled and active in the Prehospital Care Technology program of the Corporación Universitaria Rafael Nuñez in the second period of 2018 from the second to the sixth semester. When evaluating the students it was found that they have little empowerment of the basic knowledge to perform invasive procedures in the peripheral vascular pathway, highlighting the lack of protocols, management and function of crystalloid solutions, venoclisis equipment and catheters according to their enumeration which are used. There was also a lack of knowledge in protocols for airway management, adequate management of endotracheal intubation equipment, indications and contraindications for definitive endotracheal intubation and the benefits it generates in patients.
