  1. Numbers in between brackets indicate percentages of total amount of CVCs in that category. P values portraying correlation of predictive factors and positive outcomes. If the questionnaire was incomplete or data was missing, analyses were performed with the available data. It was unclear in 289 cases if US-guidance or the landmark technique was used to insert the CVC. CVC: central venous cathteter; US: ultrasound; IJV: internal jugular vein; SV: subclavian vein
