BACKGROUND Increasing the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the right internal jugular vein facilitates cannulation and decreases complications. Maneuvers such as the Trendelenburg tilt position and ventilation with a positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) may increase the CSA of the right internal jugular vein. We determined the changes in the CSA in response to different maneuvers. METHODS The CSA (cm(2)) of the right internal jugular vein was assessed in 50 anesthetized adult cardiothoracic… CONTINUE READING
