If you’re trying to determine if vascular access is still in place, why not use agitated saline as is done when testing for a PFO on echo?
Take a 10ml flush and a 10cc syringe. Waste 1cc of NS, and draw in 1cc of air. Attach both to a 3-way stopcock, and to the suspect line. Move the saline back and forth between the 2 syringes to get it agitated. Inject the agitated NS into the line. Look at the 4-chamber apical view of the heart. As the bubbles reach the heart you will a change in density between the RV and LV. Thoughts?
nice blog and very easy to understand your blog
