Emergency medicine residents and paramedics cannulated patients who were anaesthetised. The external jugular vein (EJV) took longer to cannulate and had a higher failure rate than an antecubital vein. More than a quarter of the paramedics and a third of the doctors failed to cannulate the EJV.
Is external jugular vein cannulation feasible in emergency care? A randomised study in open heart surgery patients
