Thanks for the update.

The arterial line placement video seems to be a part of a new series called Videos in Clinical Medicine.

NEJM had a central line placement video a few years ago.

These are great resources for residents.

NEJM is again leading the way: images, audio summary, podcasts, videos. I think they will be blogging soon... :-)
