A method of percutaneous cannulation of the right atrium via the internal jugular vein is presented which has several advantages over the use of the subclavian vein. There is a lower incidence of complications. It is technically easier because of the more definite landmarks and more superficial location of the internal jugular vein. It is more accessible than the subclavian vein during most surgical procedures should the need arise for central venous pressure measurement and/or rapid intravenous infusion.
