Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Cardiac resuscitation is accompanied by rapidly performed life saving procedures. Central venous pressure catheters may be inadvertently inserted into the internal jugular vein, and infusion of pharmacologic agents through such a catheter may lead to potentially serious complications. Rapid detection of these iatrogenic complications is required.
