Continuous central pressure monitoring and simultaneous continuous infusion via the same central venous catheter are sometimes necessary. Based on theoretical calculations and experimental measurements, we have determined that pressure monitoring is essentially unaffected if the continuous infusion rate is 50 ml.h(-1) or less for an adult and a paediatric central catheter. At rates > 200 ml.h(-1), the central venous pressure is exaggerated by up to 4 mmHg and 8 mmHg for the adult and paediatric catheters, respectively.
