If you ever feel bad over a misplaced central line, just go read this case report. It is written by a guy who accidentally placed his central line in the patient’s pulmonary artery.

Accidental Puncture of the Pulmonary Artery during a Subclavian Central Venous Catheterization, Case Reports in Critical Care, Volume 2012 (2012).

Seriously? The pulmonary artery?!? Seriously…. Respect for publishing that case.
