For decades ECG has been utilized to appropriately detect the central catheter tip location and eliminate the need for a confirmatory chest x-ray. This webinar will review the options for using ECG for catheter tip clearance. Techniques will include a saline column or a direct method using a wire. Recent literature and supportive guidelines will also be discussed to enhance the overall volume of evidence in support of real time catheter clearance using ECG.
Learning Objectives:
  • Review intracavitary ECG for Centrally Inserted Central Catheters(CICCs) tip positioning
  • Describe importance of central catheter tip location accuracy
  • Review workflow and financial benefits of IC-ECG confirmation
  • Discuss safety benefits of IC-ECG for CICCs
