Why is it that arterial lines can be ran from a femoral central line?
Isnt the femoral line venous blood and a different pressure?
Also, can a CVP be running off a femoral central line??
(as you can tell im not an ICU nurse)
My memory of this is seeing arterial lines in the radial artery, and CVP from a Swan.
A relatively length google serach did not answer my questions, so any help is appreciated.
