Sonographic evaluation of the normal response of subclavian veins to respiratory maneuvers.

Abstract

Sonography of the subclavian veins is a new noninvasive, simple technique to evaluate the subclavian veins. The physiologic changes of the subclavian veins consistently respond in a predictable manner to simple respiratory maneuvers. The subclavian veins of 11 normal patients (22 veins) whose ages ranged from 18 to 60 years were studied. The most… (More)
