This has got to be the best damn way to put in an arterial line. I'm freaking sold - was worried about it being a "crutch". Whatever. Today had three patients sicker than **** who needed an arterial line like yesterday, one the residdents had turned the wrists to hamburger, the other so edematous you could barely find a pulse, and all of them I didn't have time to supervise the residents going about doing the monitoring line per usual. One ended up being a brachial, and the US made every single one simple and easy. What's been everyone else's experiences? As an aside, I've bene playing around with different ways of suturing them in. What does everyone like to do for securing the lines?
