Ultrasound-guided placement of single-lumen peripheral intravenous catheters in the internal jugular vein

from Western Journal of Emergency Medicine

The peripheral internal jugular, also called the "easy IJ," is an alternative to peripheral venous access reserved for patients with difficult intravenous access. The procedure involves placing a single-lumen catheter in the IJ vein under ultrasound guidance. As this technique is relatively new, the details regarding the ease of the procedure, how exactly it should be performed, and the safety of the procedure are uncertain.
