Positional Change-Induced Arrhythmia during General Anesthesia Related
to Caudal Movement of the Peripherally Inserted Central Venous Catheter:
A Case Report
We present a case of arrhythmia developed after positional change in a
patient under general anesthesia, who had peripherally inserted central
venous catheter (PICC) inserted by ECG-guided tip confirmation system.
We stress the possibility of cardiac arrhythmias related to caudal
movement of the PICC catheter upon changes in patient’s position.
