Abstract Ultrasound guidance for venous catheter placement requires the use of both hands. An accurate and stable ultrasound image is fundamental for obtaining good quality images, consequently permitting accurate needle placement. We hypothesized that the dominant hand could be used to perform echography, leaving the non-dominant hand available for peripheral venous catheter (PVC) insertion.
