Access is attained via the internal jugular vein, external jugular vein, subclavian vein, or femoral vein. Catheters longer than 40 cm are intended for femoral vein insertion. Contraindications This device is contraindicated for patients exhibiting severe, uncontrolled thrombocytopenia or coagulopathy. Warnings Percutaneous insertion of the catheter should be made into the axillary-subclavian vein at the junction of the outer and mid-third of the clavicle lateral to the thoracic outlet. The catheter should not be inserted into the subclavian vein medially, because such placement can lead to compression of the catheter between the first rib and clavicle and can lead to damage or fracture and embolization of the catheter.1 Fluoroscopic or radiographic confirmation of catheter tip placement should be helpful in demonstrating that the catheter is not being pinched by the first rib and clavicle.1
