Can a PowerPort (or any other implanted port) be used to obtain accurate central venous pressure (CVP) readings? Does anyone have experience with this?

You can use a picc line for a CVP but you could not say it was a right atrial pressure. The picc terminates at the svc. I have never seen an implanted port (I.e. Port-a-cath)
Used for CVP's.
