Not to worry Kelly, they took my weapons away a long time ago. J They should have taken my horse, too, but it was hiding under the blanket... I also said I assumed it was force of habit, and that I did not wish to offend. (At least the horse did not wish to offend.) But I could not ignore my pet peeve (don't be jealous, horse) and peeve jumps up on me every time I see the "SFV" thing. I think we use "CFV" so we do not confuse it with the "FV" or its more profound branch? I could be wrong and often is (am?).
And, peeve asked me to point out, I am not going on about the profunda femoris vs. deep femoral as, what ever you call it, it is unlikely to result in improper patient care.
And, Kelly, thanks for your work with SVU and for all of us.

That would be me.........I said SFV.....kill me.
(My high horse is chomping at the bit. I have seen "SFV" in a couple of responses, and can only assume it was from force of habit, since there is no "S" before the "FV" anymore (unless there is a Society of Flownet Vasculophiles and I was not invited to join). I know it is confusing since they did leave the "S" in "SFA". But, if this was easy I would not still be learning, and where's the fun in that?)
I was just trying to be more specific because HAD I said femoral vein (which I actually did say femoral vein, but then I abbreviated SFV) someone would have nitpicked to death the fact that the CFV.....(gee why do we say CFV) is not very long......and gee, we can only see the first few cm of the PFV unless they are very skinny........so
Sorry, get your gun. :-)
I am actually on the committee that re-writes the SVU guidelines and I wouldn't put that word in the guideline, but when you are trying to explain why you only sample at one site along a vein that is pretty long, a little description helps and it wasn't the common femoral vein and it wasn't the profunda femoral vein, so it was the other femoral vein that I meant.
