US-Guided Infraclavicular Catheter- Dealing with an Aberrant Vessel
Infraclavicular • 22m
Brandon Winchester performs a continuous infraclavicular catheter and demonstrates the identification and avoidance of an aberrant vein in the usual path of the needle. Other tips demonstrated include:
-holding the non-sterile ultrasound transducer through the clear sterile drape
-3 keys to needle visualization: Houdini clavicle; probe rocking; and inserting the needle several centimeters from the probe
