Point of care ultrasound for guided central venous catheter insertion
Record ID 32018005332
Authors' objectives: What is the clinical effectiveness of point-of-care ultrasound for guided central venous catheter insertion? What is the cost-effectiveness of point-of-care ultrasound for guided central venous catheter insertion? What is the evidence-based guidelines regarding the use of point-of-care ultrasound for guided central venous catheter insertion?
Authors' results and conclusions: Limited evidence suggested that the use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) to guide the insertion of central venous lines in adults was effective and safe compared with traditional or fluoroscopic guidance method. All 3 included guidelines recommend the use of POCUS to guide cannulation through different locations of insertion in both adults and children. We did not identify any economic studies on the cost-effectiveness of POCUS-guided central venous line insertion.
