In this episode I go over some tips and tricks for maximizing your success with peripheral IVs, arterial lines, central venous catheters and pulmonary artery catheters (Swan Ganz catheters).
The New England Journal videos that I recommend you take a look at for detailed reviews of each of these are here:

- Arterial: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMvcm044149
- Central: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMvcm055053
