Umbilical Vascular Catheterization

0

Anderson et al (2008) in The New England Journal of Medicine have published a video describing the umbilical vascular catheterization (NEJM subscription required).

“The placement of umbilical catheters is an essential technique for the treatment of many newborns in unstable condition. This video will demonstrate the placement of catheters in the umbilical vein and the umbilical artery. Careful preparation, sterile technique, and attention to detail are instrumental in successful catheter placement. We will demonstrate the regional anatomy of the umbilicus, indications and contraindications for the insertion of an umbilical catheter, the recommended technique for catheter placement in both the umbilical artery and vein, selected complications associated with the procedure and suggestions for how to avoid them, and appropriate aftercare of the catheter” (Anderson et al 2008).
