Deceptive jugular manometry, blood colour and Po<sub>2</sub> in the presence of an ipsilateral upper extremity arteriovenous fistula: a report of two cases
AbstractManometry, blood gas analysis and colour of blood are often used as adjuncts to verify central venous access and rule out inadvertent arterial puncture.
