OBJECTIVE Subclavian vein catheterization may cause various complications. We compared the real-time ultrasound-guided subclavian vein cannulation vs. the landmark method in critical care patients. DESIGN Prospective randomized study. SETTING Medical intensive care unit of a tertiary medical center. PATIENTS Four hundred sixty-three mechanically(More)
Management of critically ill patients requires rapid and safe diagnostic techniques. Ultrasonography has become an indispensable tool that supplements physical examination in the intensive care unit. It enables early recognition of neurological emergencies, assists the diagnosis of abdominal and lung pathologies, and provides real-time information on the(More)
Objective. One limitation of ultrasound-guided vascular access is the technical challenge of visualizing the cannula during insertion into the vessel. We hypothesized that the use of an echogenic vascular cannula (EC) would improve visualization when compared with a nonechogenic vascular cannula (NEC) during real-time ultrasound-guided subclavian vein (SCV)(More)
