Abstract

Invasive hemodynamic monitoring has become an integral part of intensive care management. Whereas the pulmonary artery catheter is the mainstay for determination of the hemodynamic profile and differentiation between cardiogenic and noncardiogenic forms of pulmonary edema, immediate central venous access in itself is of importance in rapid volume replacement in cases complicated by severe hypovolemia. Central venous catheters are also the preferred route of administration of total parenteral nutrition to patients with cancer. We present our experience with real-time ultrasonographic guidance during subclavian vein catheterization in critical care obstetrics and gynecologic oncology.
