Read Dr. Butts’ article, “Think SUPRAclavicular for Subclavian Lines,” in the July 2013 issue, and then view this video that shows assessment of the venous anatomy as seen under ultrasound. The internal jugular (IJ) vein is seen as the triangular vessel that appears to fluctuate slightly with respiration. As the view progresses inferiorly, the IJ can be seen to join the SCV, which appears tubular in this orientation.
