Ultrasound Guided Peripheral Intravenous Catheterization in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

2020-02-17 18:20:51 | BioPortfolio


This is a randomized controlled prospective study. The purpose of this study is to compare a recently described technique of ultrasound (US) guided, dynamic needle tip positioning (DNTP), to the traditional technique of vein visualization and palpation for peripheral venous cannulation in intubated, sedated, and mechanically ventilated pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) patients. First attempt success rate, overall success rate within 3 attempts or 10 minutes (whichever comes first), number of attempts to success, time to success and cannula sizes will be compared between the 2 techniques. The study will include intubated, sedated and mechanically ventilated children, aged 0-18 years, hospitalized in the PICU who require peripheral intravenous (PIV) access for their management.
