I would use hypotension as the dx. I know when my docs put catheters in for "need for venous access," a lot of the time, the pt is also septic. As to your other question, I'm not sure what a sonosite ultrasound is...if I were you, I would ask the physician what the difference between the fluoro machine and the sonosite machine are and what the difference between a regular sono and a sonosite sono is. Sounds to me like the ultrasound code would be more appropriate.
