Central line placement

  1. Could use alittle help. I am looking for a good website with tutorials on SC and IJ line placement, ie landmarks and techniques. I have looked in about 6 of my books and all have very lame schematics that leave much to the imagination.

    Thanks

    There are somethings no matter how many times you read them, it may leave you wanting. When you actually watch a pro do it, then you try also under guidance and supervision those lame schematics would rapidly come to life. Just like intubation, I read all I wanted. But once I found my sweet spot, it became history. A little bit of anatomy, a good steady hand, plenty of repetition does the trick with skill exercises. Do not let yourself be beaten over over it. you can always try MG. It has those "watch out" procedure outlines. Good Luck

    i read everything i could get my little hands on - the only things that helps is doing it with guidance by someone who knows! i am glad to say it comes rather quickly (so far...*fingers crossed*)
