Comparative Study between Anatomical Landmark Versus Ultrasound Guided Technique for Internal Jugular Vein Cannulation
Catheterisation of Internal Jugular Vein (IJV) is commonly attempted to obtain central venous access for haemodynamic monitoring, fluid administration, TPN and haemodialysis. The safe puncture of IJV is achieved by using anatomical landmarks. Complications like carotid artery puncture, pneumothorax, haemothorax, and even death can occur during procedure. Ultrasound (USG) guidance could be beneficial in placing central venous catheters by improving the success rate and reducing the complications.
