Examines the feasibility of using jugular vein to femoral artery extracoporeal circulation to produce total body cooling for prolonged circulatory arrest. Assessment of the effects of acidosis and alkalosis on resuscitation and survival with arrest periods; Occurrence of ventricular fibrillation during the experiment; Use of high concentrations of carbon dioxide in the ventilatory gas and acidosis to prevent or reduce the incidence of ventricular fibrillation.

    The placement of central venous catheter (CVC) through internal jugular vein is not free from potential hazards. We report two cases of triple lumen central venous catheter, placed into right internal jugular vein, which got entrapped in patients who had undergone mitral valve replacement. The...

    Carotid artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication from placement of an internal jugular triple lumen catheter. Endovascular stenting is the favored treatment option in the setting of traumatic carotid injury. In other parts of the body,specifically the femoral artery,thrombin injection has...
