OBJECTIVE To determine the usefulness of ultrasound to evaluate central venous catheter misplacements and detection of pneumothorax, thus obviating postprocedural radiograph. After the insertion of a central venous catheter, chest radiograph is usually obtained to ensure correct positioning of the catheter tip and detect postprocedural complications. DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING Adult intensive care unit. PATIENTS 111 consecutive patients undergoing central venous… CONTINUE READING
