We had a case where a patient no access for an EGD, an attending said go ahead with a central line for the time of EGD (high risk patient). Internal medicine flipped out. I'm a first year resident, I always thought that prolonged central access increased infection but the case has made me question my assumptions. What's the difference between 2 18G in the antecubital v. central for short term? By central I mean IJ, I can see why femoral are more high risk. Thanks for any help by those more knowledgeable!
