Employer/Department Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care
Compensation $22.00/hour
Who should apply Students who qualify for Federal Work Study program
About this job

Research Scope: Radial artery catheters (“arterial lines”) are placed in patients to facilitate hemodynamic management and frequent lab draws. In the course of care, loss of these catheters may lead to delays in blood sampling, inability to accurately monitor blood pressure, and exposure to risks associated with re-insertion. We propose a prospective, observational study to quantify the rate of arterial catheter failure postoperatively and to determine whether there are modifiable factors that affect catheter longevity . We will be collecting data about arterial catheter placement technique and patient factors. We will then collect data about the patients' ICU course, including whether the catheter fails while it is still needed.

Duration: We would expect the data collection to take at least 6 months from the coordinator's start date, potentially up to a year.

Skills required: Basic computer skills, including Excel. Much of the data collection will come from Apex, the UCSF electronic medical record system. Specific training for this will be provided.
