The internal jugular vein (IJV) is a common access route to the central venous system. Anatomical landmarks (group I) are normally used for localization of the IJV. We have compared this method with two other methods based on ultrasonic waves to identify the IJV and the carotid artery (CA) (even in atypical positions). We employed an ultrasound Doppler device in group II and a real-time ultrasonograph in group III. Central venous catheters were placed into the right IJV by the Seldinger… CONTINUE READING
