B.Braun, along with Analogic Corporation, is supporting a Pre-Meeting Workshop titled, "Ultrasound Guided Upper Extremity Simulation Workshop," on Saturday, September 6th from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. Dr. Robert B. Dawson, DNP, MSA, APRN, ACNP-BC, CPUI, VA-BC, Vascular Access Consultant, PICC Academy and Nancy L. Moureau, BSN, CRNI, CPUI, VA-BC, President & CEO, PICC Excellence, Inc. will present. The Right Triangle Method will be featured, as well as the 45/50 rule for ultrasound peripheral catheter insertion to ensure optimal procedure success. This skills lab will reinforce both in plane and out of plane access for peripheral veins of the mid-forearm and upper arm.

Dr. Dawson will also be a featured presenter during the Platinum Showcase sessions. Dr. Dawson's session presentation, "Maximizing Peripheral Access Success: Featuring Clinical Application of Evidence using a Practice Framework," will provide a comprehensive overview on how to implement peripheral vascular access for the least risk to the patient to help achieve optimal outcomes. The presentation will take place on Monday, September 8th, 2014 from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center Potomac Room 3-4. B.Braun is also a proud sponsor of AVA foundation's annual fund raiser Connect the Dots, which supports education and research.

"Catheter-related bloodstream infections, needlestick (sharps) injuries and exposure to potentially deadly blood borne pathogens continue to be major issues facing all healthcare professionals," said Tom Sutton, Vice President of Vascular Access Systems at B.Braun. "We are committed to combating these issues by providing a robust portfolio of safety-engineered IV therapy devices that offer patient protection against infection and optimum safety for clinicians in the workplace," added Sutton.

Dr. Dawson will be the featured expert at B.Braun's booth where he will demonstrate his 45/50 rule for ultrasound peripheral vascular access on Monday, September 8th (1:15 – 2:15 p.m.), Tuesday, September 9th (12:15 – 1:15 p.m.), and Wednesday, September 10th (12:30 – 1:30 p.m.). In addition, B.Braun will demonstrate the following safety-engineered IV therapy devices at booth (#110) during AVA. 

  • Introcan Safety® IV Catheter, which is designed with innovative passive-safety features to help eliminate accidental needlestick injury - effortlessly. From insertion to catheter deployment to needle removal, clinicians are protected by a truly passive safety device that is activated automatically - no extra steps required and cannot be bypassed.
  • Introcan Safety® 3 Closed IV Catheter, B.Braun's latest innovation, which takes the same preferred passive safety-engineered needlestick protection found in Introcan Safety and adds additional protection from blood exposure. For safety and convenience, the Introcan Safety 3's unique multi-access blood control septum minimizes blood exposure during needle removal and each time the catheter hub is accessed.
  • InVision-Plus® Neutral IV Connector, the latest addition to the B.Braun needleless connector portfolio through an exclusive U.S. distribution agreement with RyMed Technologies, LLC, provides a 10-point standard of features. B.Braun's portfolio of needleless connectors, including the CARESITE® Luer Access Device, offers a safe way to access IV lines through innovative features designed to help reduce catheter occlusions while protecting healthcare workers from accidental needlestick injuries.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
