Abstract

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.
