Study on Peripheral Central Venous Catheter Induced Supraventricular Tachycardia in a Patient of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Central venous catheters (CVCs) are used to administer intravenous fluids and blood products, medications, parenteral nutrition, and to monitor haemodynamic condition in intensive care units (and, increasingly, in other locations). During central venous access procedures, multiple complications such as ventricular dysrhythmias and bundle branch blocks are well known complications, as was the case with our patient. The risk of complications during central venous catheter insertion or exchange has been well established. Most of the complications include mechanical problems, while arrhythmias can also occasionally be induced[1]. Here we present a case of supraventricular tachycardia caused by the peripheral central venous catheter in a young acute lymphoblastic leukemia patient.
