Clinicians are increasingly dealing with morbid obese patients. In morbid obese patients, difficult sampling and problems encountered with noninvasive blood pressure monitoring makes arter...
Cardiac output monitoring devices are commonly used in ICU patients. The most precise use direct measurement, which require artery cannulation. The gold standard is Swan-Ganz catheter, but...
Invasive blood pressure monitoring is achieved by cannulating an artery and transducing the pressure. During arterial cannulation the artery can be located by palpation, but use of ultraso...
Data from literature: transradial access failure sometimes occurs due to inability to cannulate the radial artery due to radial artery spasm1 causing severe difficulties in manipulation of...
The investigators are trying to compare the ultrasound-guided technique vs. palpation method for radial arterial cannulation in infants.
The radial artery (RA) is routinely used for both hemodynamic monitoring and for cardiac catheterization. Although cannulation of the RA is usually undertaken through manual palpation, ultrasound (US)...
The distal transradial approach (dTRA) is being widely adopted by interventional cardiologists, primarily due to reduced morbidity and mortality from access site complications. The distal radial arter...
Asymptomatic radial artery occlusion (RAO) is a major limitation of transradial catheterization (TRC). Two radial compression hemostatic devices are compared for their respective effects on RAO.
The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.
The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.
The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.
A distinct and virulent form of DENGUE characterized by thrombocytopenia and hemoconcentration (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive tourniquet test. When accompanied by circulatory failure and shock (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
