I am still not used to the long hours Monday-Friday, perhaps wearing compression stockings will help. I would like a masseur hopefully my mentor can hire one. As I am observing all kinds of vascular studies, and learning the new equipment that is being used here at the vascular lab, a case that stood out was a patient who was getting a carotid exam. I noticed that their right vertebral artery had a to-and-fro waveform or retrograde flow. When that situation arises you automatically should scan the brachiocephalic or innominate artery to check for stenosis. The diagnosis for this patient is subclavian steal syndrome (SSS). It is narrowing or occlusion of the subclavian artery. Off to watch the Real HouseWives of Beverly Hills...hasta mañana!

Many thanks for details

    I want to reach out to all students and any individual who is interested in the vascular ultrasound field.  Contributing my opinion and experience as a student I can bring awareness so existing or perspective students can benefit from what I have learned. Having the opportunity to voice my experience as a student may help improve challenges that many students go through while becoming a vascular sonographer. Becoming an expert in my field is my passion.
