Summary

The Trendelenburg position is used to distend the central veins, improving both success and safety of vascular cannulation. The purpose of this study is to measure the cross-sectional area of the internal jugular vein (IJV) in three different positions, using surface ultrasound.

Central Venous Pressure (CVP) Assessment by Ultrasound and Physical Examination

Ultrasound may be useful for noninvasively determining the central venous pressure. We intend to compare the clinical examination of the neck veins; ultrasound delineation of the internal ...

Correlation Between Peripheral Venous Pressure and Central Venous Pressure in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit

In patients admitted to a coronary care unit, what is the correlation coefficient and limits of agreement for paired measurements of peripheral venous pressure and central venous pressure ...

Pontos-Central Venous Pressure and Cardiac Surgery

Recent studies indicated the central venous pressure (CVP) as a prognostic marker. Therefore, we retrospectively analyzed the CVP on admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) in cardiac s...

Estimation of Internal Jugular Vein Central Venous Pressure (CVP) by Ultrasound

Objectives: 1. To study the validity and reliability of estimation of the central venous pressure by measurement of internal jugular vein size using 2-dimensional ultrasound. ...

Central Venous Pressure Monitoring in Living Donor Kidney Recipients does not affect Immediate Graft Function: a propensity score analysis.

During kidney transplantation, intraoperative fluid management can affect post-transplant graft function. It is unclear whether or not central venous pressure (CVP) monitoring is required to guide flu...

Identification of a "VTE-rich" population in pediatrics - Critically ill children with central venous catheters.

The incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is rising among inpatients in US hospitals, especially among kids with central venous catheters (CVCs) in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).

Value of the combination of renal resistance index and central venous pressure in the early prediction of sepsis-induced acute kidney injury.

Early prediction of acute kidney injury (AKI) in septic patients is difficult. This study aimed to assess the values of renal resistive index (RI), central venous pressure (CVP), and their combination...

Comparison of complications in midlines versus central venous catheters: Are midlines safer than central venous lines?

With the rising use of midline catheters (MCs), validation of their safety is essential. Our study aimed to evaluate the incidence of bloodstream infections (BSIs) and other complications related to t...

Three-Dimensional Inferior Vena Cava for Assessing Central Venous Pressure in Patients with Cardiogenic Shock.

The inferior vena cava (IVC) has a complex three-dimensional (3D) shape, but measurements used to estimate central venous pressure (CVP) remain based on two-dimensional (2D) echocardiographic imaging....

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.

Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

The blood pressure in the VEINS. It is usually measured to assess the filling PRESSURE to the HEART VENTRICLE.

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.
