Abstract

The straight wire was successfully placed in an intrathoracic position and a catheter threaded over it in 16 out of 36 patients (44%). In instances where the straight wire could not be successfully passed into the thorax, the J-wire was subsequently successfully passed in all instances (p<0.05). No complications occurred using either technique. Blood was easily withdrawn from all catheters and an acceptable CVP reading was obtained. Chest roentgenograms showed all catheters to be in the superior vena cava.
