OBJECTIVE Compare changes in P-wave amplitude of the intra-atrial electrocardiogram (ECG) and its corresponding transesophageal echocardiography (TEE)-controlled position to verify the exact localization of a central venous catheter (CVC) tip. DESIGN A prospective study. SETTING University, single-institutional setting. PARTICIPANTS Two hundred patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery. INTERVENTIONS CVC placement via the right internal jugular vein with ECG control using the… CONTINUE READING
