DEATH TO THE YELLOW CATHETER OF DEATH

It’s not news but I recommend you read Paul E Marik’s review of the Pulmonary Artery Catheter (PAC) from Annals of Intensive Care 2013. Basically he tears the whole thing apart, writes an obituary and suggest we make it a historical curiosity. I think very few authors can get away with what he does there.

Please spam the paper to your ICU colleagues so that we can get rid of this abomination once and for all.
