Abstract:

Central venous cannulation using the basic principles of the Seldinger technique is a core skill for anaesthetists and critical care doctors in situations where intravenous access is difficult or multiple infusions are required. While potentially lifesaving, central venous cannulation carries the risk of serious morbidity (or even mortality). Mitigating these risks through aseptic technique, ultrasound guidance and timely management of complications is vital.
