Abstract

The indications for the use of vena cava catheters are measurement of central venous pressure, infusions and transfusions in critical circulatory conditions, long term infusions, parenteral nutrition and administration of hypertonic solutions. While the use of caval catheters may save many lives, it is not without risks. In a one year prospective study performed in nine hospitals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland* we evaluated our experience with 3241 central venous catheterizations and compared the results with other reported series (11,000 cases).
