Abstract

Cardiac resuscitation is accompained by rapidly performed life-saving procedures. Central venous pressure catheters may be inadvertently inserted into the internal jugular vein, and infusion of pharmacologic agents through such a catheter may lead to potentially serious complications. Rapid detection of these iatrogenic complications is required.
