Subclavian Central line placement with Ultrasound -STOP AND LEARN

Twitter Icon for @CriticalCareNow

Dr Haney Mallemat ,Twitter tag @CriticalCareNow, shares the best training presentation on Subclavian USS guided CVC placement

I met Haney Mallemat, an EM doctor in Baltimore, Maryland, USA yesterday on Google Hangout and he shared this SUPERB teaching presentation on Subclavian USS guided CVC placement. I have followed him on Twitter for a while and when I saw a tweet about him giving a hangout talk on this topic, I had to see it for myself!

Since Haney published his talk on his own website, Ultrarounds, Seth Trueger published a great commentary article on the presentation and Haney posted some fantastic comments that you should all read here on MD Aware blog.

I must admit I have only ever placed Subclavian lines blindly but now will use my ultrasound with Haney’s technique.

    Hello….this is maybe the only resource on the web that explains the ”in-plane” approach to SV catheter, which is very safe….I did my first one following the steps in this video…
    Great Job …. K. A. Germany
