ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views about a study which states that ultrasonographic guidance has increased successful insertion of internal jugular vein catheter in the emergency department (ED). The study differed from other ED studies by limiting the procedure to the internal jugular approach, randomizing with concealed allocation, and using a sample size large enough to show important differences. A weakness of this study was the use of few operators for a large number of procedures.
