The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of passive leg elevation and Trendelenburg position on the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the internal jugular (IJ) and subclavian veins (SCV). Ultrasound imaging was used for the following measurements of both the IJV and SCV: baseline in the supine position (control); Trendelenburg position 15°; reverse Trendelenburg position 15° and passive leg elevation 50°. Twenty healthy male volunteers were studied. Mean CSA of the IJV was 1.12±0.57 cm2… Expand
