US-Guided Right Subclavian Venous Cannulation
In this video Dr. Ola Borgquist makes the case for ultrasound-guided, right-sided subclavian central venous lines and introduces the microconvex transducer as a great tool in your practice. As Dr. Borgquist explains the learning curve is not as steep as with other procedures and he expects you will soon be convinced that this is a great technique for central venous catheterisation!
Dr Ola Borgquist works as an anesthesiologist/critical care physician at the Department of Anesthesia & Critical Care of Skåne University Hospital in Lund, Sweden. His PhD thesis, "Negative Pressure Wound Therapy - therapy settings and biological effects in peripheral wounds", was published in 2013. Currently, his research encompasses both cardiac arrest (the TTM2-trial) and central venous catheterisation (evaluation of complications). Dr. Borgquist is an avid fan of ultrasound-guided procedures (venous lines, regional anesthesia) and tries to help colleagues learn through instructional videos (www.interanest.org).
