Abstract

Twenty-one obstetric patients in whom pulmonary artery catheters had been inserted were studied. Complications were minor in nature and unassociated with adverse sequelae. They included transient premature ventricular contraction on insertion of the catheter in two cases and a ruptured balloon and a positive culture of the catheter tip in one case.
