Arm Position for US Guided SCL

R.E.B.E.L. EM - Emergency Medicine Blog
May 23, 2016 - R.E.B.E.L.EM - By Matt Astin
"The subclavian route is known to be the site for central line placement with the lowest risk of infection, but can also lead to many mechanical complications [2]. The biggest risk of subclavian line placement is an iatrogenic pneumothorax. The use of ultrasound for subclavian line placement can greatly reduce this risk by watching the needle enter the vein. But does arm position matter for ultrasound guided subclavian central lines?
The article attempting to answer this question is currently in press, entitled “The Influence of Arm Positioning on Ultrasonic Visualization of the Subclavian Vein: An Anatomical Ultrasound Study in Healthy Volunteers” (Anesth Analg 2016).
