Placement of a femoral artery sheath is much less uncomfortable than a radial artery line. A 7 French sheath is big adequate to allow passage of a 6 French consultant catheter, and nonetheless let arterial line tracking. three.

(a) Unruptured aneurysms ● A loading dose of IV heparin is given (70 U kg−1) and five min later, a five mL specimen of blood for an activated clotting time (ACT) is drawn from the sheath. The consultant catheter is put within the ICA or vertebral artery purely after the heparinization is healing (usually five min or extra after the IV loading dose is given, or after the ACT has been chanced on to be within the objective range).
