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.
