Arterial line placement is a common procedure in various critical care settings. Intra-arterial blood pressure (BP) measurement is more accurate than measurement of BP by noninvasive means, especially in the critically ill.

Arterial cannulation also allows repeated arterial blood gas samples to be drawn without injury to the patient.
