Line position

Sweep in subcostal view showing a catheter in the right atrium

Subcostal short axis identifies that the catheter is in the inferior vena cava and enters the right atrium to reach the SVC. Catheter has to be pulled. 

Here one can appreciate that the umbilical arterial line is too deep inside the right atrium (subcostal view).

Subcostal view - once line is repositioned, we can observe its adequate position at the IVC-RA junction.
