Some older patients with heart failure are too high risk for traditional cardiac surgery. Interventional cardiologist Satyavardhan Pulukurthy, MD and the team of cardiac specialists at Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton offer a minimally invasive approach to aortic valve replacement called TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement.)
An essential step in consistently establishing IV's, especially when your patient has those dreaded "rolling" veins, is stabilizing the target vein. (To have a little fun, can you spot the two scenes in which we used rubber arms??) Mike Stewart invites back a favorite guest, paramedic Stacey Crump, to demonstrate a little trick that may help you improve your IV starts. Like any other strategy, this one is not perfect and will not work in all circumstances or with all patients, but hopefully it may prove helpful occasionally.

Even though she never had any problems with her heart, a lack of energy led Kaja to visit her doctor. Tests revealed she had a problem with her aortic valve. Dr. Satyavardhan Pulukurthy and the team at Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton performed a minimally invasive procedure called transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and Kaja is feeling great.
