The Speed of Sound: Video 3. SUPRAclavicular for Subclavian Lines
Read Dr. Butts’ article, “Think SUPRAclavicular for Subclavian Lines,” in the July 2013 issue, and then view this video that shows an “in-plane” approach to a vessel (using a simulator). As the needle is inserted from the end of the transducer, rather than at its mid-point, it traverses the path of the transducer. This enables the entire needle, including the tip, to be visible throughout the procedure, minimizing complications such as arterial puncture or pneumothorax.
