ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 14-year-old patient who experience erroneous central venous pressure (CVP) measurement due to misplaced central venous catheter (CVC) tip following sub-aortic membrane resection with cardiopulmonary bypass support. It notes that placement of CVC is associated with complication associated to perforation or injury on nearby blood vessels and structures. It suggests that chest radiograph must be executed after catheter placement to confirm the position of CVC.
