Catheterization of central veins is a routine technique which is widely used in emergency department, operation theater, and intensive care units. Seldinger technique is widely used to place central venous and arterial catheters and is generally considered safe. The technique does have multiple potential risks. We describe a case of hemothorax following internal jugular venous cannulation. Measures which can be taken to prevent such complications are explained in detail as well as recommended steps to remedy errors should they occur.
