Sample text

Swan-Ganz or Pulmonary Artery Catheter FIGURE 3-23 Left lung atelectasis. The endotracheal tube is down too far, and the tip is located in the right main stem bronchus. The left main stem bronchus has become totally obstructed, the air in the left lung has been resorbed, and volume loss is seen in the left lung with shift of the mediastinum to the left. Central lines are usually placed to monitor cardiac or pulmonary arterial pressures. The normal course is almost circular: down the SVC, through the right atrium and right ventricle, and out into the main pulmonary and peripheral pulmonary arteries.

Evaluation of the placement and associated complications of various tubes, wires, and lines is a common reason for ordering a chest x-ray. On patients who are extremely sick and in intensive care units, the portable chest x-ray often resembles a plate of spaghetti with tubes, lines, and wires everywhere. Your job is to figure out which parts of the tubes and wires are inside the patient and which are simply lying on the patient. In addition, you need to know if the lines and tubes that are inside the patient are going to the right place or are at the correct level.

The pulmonary veins usually are more difficult to see than the arteries. They converge on the atria at a level 1 to 3 inches below the pulmonary arteries. Lymph nodes are not normally seen on a chest x-ray, either in the hilar regions or in the mediastinum. The lungs are composed mostly of air, and therefore normally not much is seen other than blood vessels. These should be distinct and remain that way as they are traced back to the hila. If you cannot see blood vessels clearly near the hila, a perihilar infiltrate or fluid may be present (such as from CHF).
