A Prospective Trial of Ultrasound Versus Landmark Guided Central Venous Access in the Pediatric Population
The investigators hypothesized that, in children undergoing venous cannulation for central line placement by pediatric surgeons, ultrasound-guided cannulation leads to an increase in successful venous cannulation at first attempt compared to landmark guided cannulation.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
