Central venous catheterization is a basic skill applicable in various medical fields. However, because it may occasionally cause lethal complications, we developed this practical guide that will help a novice operator successfully perform central venous catheterization using ultrasound guidance. The focus of this practical guide is patient safety. It details the fundamental knowledge and techniques that are indispensable for performing ultrasound-guided internal jugular vein catheterization (other choices of indwelling catheters, subclavian, axillary, and femoral venous catheter, or peripherally inserted central venous catheter are also described in alternatives).

Central venous catheterization is a common tool used to monitor central venous pressure and administer fluid medications in patients undergoing surgery. The loss of a broken guide wire into the circul...
Central venous catheterization is the placement of a catheter in such a manner that its tip is positioned within the proximal third of the superior vena cava, the right atrium or the inferior vena cav...
Central venous catheterization is a procedure frequently performed in daily clinical practice. The use of ultrasound during central venous catheter placement has significantly reduced the number of co...
BACKGROUND Retained guidewire is a recognized complication of intravascular interventions. The majority of cases are identified immediately or shortly after the procedure. In rare cases, the guidewire...
Central venous disease (CVD) is difficult to treat and often resistant to treatment. In CVD, hemodialysis vascular access should sometimes be abandoned, or in serious cases, the patient's life may be ...
To test the hypothesis that approaching the internal jugular vein with the needle bevel down would produce less injury to the vessel wall compared to the bevel up approach during central v...
Ultrasound (US)-guided central venous catheterization is now considered standard of care according to recent clinical evidence, at least considering jugular vein approach. Recent trials su...
The purpose of this study is to compare the differences in central venous catheter insertion time, success rate, and complication between the Seldinger and modified Seldinger technique for...
Total of 89 patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery will be enrolled. Right CVC insertion begins at their intersection of the cricoid cartilage level and the triangular point where t...
The anatomy and ultrasound image of infraclavicular region was investigated on cadavers and healthy volunteers, respectively. Structures，route，position and complications were discussed ...
Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.
Strategies required by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Amendments Act of 2007 when a question exists as to whether the benefits of a drug outweigh its risks. These constitute a safety plan with several potential components, including a medication guide, a communication plan, elements to ensure safe use and an implementation system to help guide the prescribers, pharmacists and patients.
The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the body's venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
