ABSTRACT
Presents a retrospective study to test the hypothesis that the incidence of complications following central venous catheterization over a guidewire is too low to justify automatic performance and the associated expense of routine postprocedure chest X-ray. Technique used; Identification of patients with a Swan=Ganz catheter procedure; Protocol revisions recommended.
