Do not inject the local anesthetic into the artery. Injection into the adjacent nerve should also be avoided due to the risk of long-lasting local paresthesias. The local anesthetic requires ~2 to 3 minutes to take effect. This is an important consideration as the arterial puncture is the only painful part of cardiac catheterization and will remain in the patient’s memory. A painful puncture and introduction of the sheath can cause both a vasospasm and a marked vasovagal reaction. Both prolong the duration of the examination and can potentially cause other avoidable complications.
038 in. 97 mm). The guidewire should be at least 20 cm longer than the catheter; the standard length in adults is 145 cm. If the guidewire is used as a placeholder during catheter exchange, the portion of the guidewire outside the patient has to be longer than the catheter to be exchanged (length up to 300 cm). However, there are also short (45 cm) wires that are used only to introduce the sheath. In general, every guidewire for intravascular use has a soft and flexible end and a stiff end. The stiff end must not be introduced into the vascular system.
