BACKGROUND Electrocardiogram (ECG)-guided central venous catheter (CVC) placement has been reported to be accurate and successful. It has been shown that the CVC tip can be reliably placed at the level of the carina using a simple formula based on the puncture site, the 'brachiocephalic notch' on the clavicle, and the carina as landmarks. This study was performed to compare the accuracy of CVC tip localization between ECG- and landmark-guided catheterization. METHODS Patients were randomized… CONTINUE READING
