The best suited ultrasound scanner for central venous catheter (CVC) is a linear probe with high frequency and depth 20-50mm.
The SIFULTRAS-3.5 has a 10-12-14 MHz to offer the suitable depth reach for CVC.
Using a real-time ultrasound device in CVC is as important as confirming the correct needle, wire, and catheter position in the vein.
The use of ultrasound (US) has been proposed to reduce the number of complications and to increase the safety and quality of CVC placement.
Static and real-time US can be used to visualize the anatomy and patency of the target vein in a short-axis and a long-axis view.
Moreover, the wireless ultrasound scanner allows the physician to assess the target vein (anatomy and vessel localization, vessel patency).
