Based on a review of medical records at a large university hospital, which of the following best describes the risk of major vascular or neurological complications arising from perioperative arterial cannulation?
Arterial cannulation is frequently performed with anesthesia for major surgery to provide beat-to-beat blood pressure monitoring and access for intermittent laboratory sampling. Arterial cannulation is generally safe and effective, but complications have been reported. These include embolic or ischemic events, transient or permanent neurologic injury, and catheter-related infections. Previously described risk factors include the site of cannulation, the size of the catheter and the duration of monitoring.
