A time out was preformed as per protocol.  The patient's [] was prepped and draped in sterile fashion with a full length drape. The patient's [] vein was accessed under ultrasound guidance with an 18 gauge thin wall needle.  A [] was inserted via the seldinger technique. Blood was withdrawn from all lumens and flushed with normal saline.  The catheter was sutured in place and a sterile dressing was applied. 

The patient tolerated the procedure well.
