A line

Full form/Meaning:

Arteriale Line

 

Definition:

Arteriale Line, a procedure that introduces a catheter into the artery so that blood pressure can be monitored; usually for critically ill patients.

 

Usage in Sentence:

“The redial artery is the most common site for cannulation of patients to place A-Line”

 

Do you know?

Using A-line as a way of measuring blood pressure is more accurate. This is because intra-arterial blood pressure (BP) measurement gives a more accurate result than BP measurement through noninvasive means.
