Role of point-of-care ultrasound during the COVID-19 pandemic: our recommendations in the management of dialytic patients

Abstract COVID-19 is a viral disease due to the infection of the novel Corona virus SARS-CoV-2, that has rapidly spread in many countries until the World Health Organization declared the pandemic from March 11, 2020. Elderly patients and those affected by hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and chronic pulmonary and cardiovascular...

Point-of-care ultrasound to complete physical exam and to reach the diagnosis in a young man with syncope

Abstract Background Cardiac syncope can result from an atrial myxoma due to outflow obstruction. Myxoma is the most common primary cardiac tumor that may cause sudden death and the nonspecific symptoms may make early diagnosis difficult. ...

Feasibility of renal resistive index measurements performed by an intermediate and novice sonographer in a volunteer population

Abstract Background The Doppler-derived renal resistive index (RRI) is emerging as a promising bedside tool for assessing renal perfusion and risk of developing acute kidney injury in critically ill patients. It is not known what level of ultrasonography competence is needed to obtain...

Combined ultrasound–CT approach to monitor acute exacerbation of interstitial lung disease

Abstract Background Lung ultrasound is a bedside non-irradiating tool for assessment and monitoring of lung diseases. A lung ultrasound score based on visualized artefacts allows reliable quantification of lung aeration, and is useful to monitor mechanical ventilation setting, fluid...

Ultrasound measurement of optic nerve sheath diameter pre- and post-lumbar puncture

Abstract Background To test the hypothesis that optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) correlates with real-time changes in intracranial pressure, we performed ultrasound measurements of the ONSD in ambulatory patients undergoing elective lumbar puncture (LP). We conducted a prospective...

Real-time ultrasound-guided thoracentesis in the intensive care unit: prevalence of mechanical complications

Abstract Background The use of thoracic ultrasound during thoracentesis reduces complications. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of complications for real-time ultrasound-guided thoracentesis performed by intensivists. As a secondary objective, the change in oxygenation...

Sonographic exploration for fascial exploration (SEFE) in necrotizing fasciitis: a case report

Abstract Background Necrotizing skin and soft tissue infections are life-threatening conditions. Reliance on gas in tissue planes leads to worsened outcomes in patients with non-gas forming types of necrotizing fasciitis (NF). ...

Rationale for using the velocity–time integral and the minute distance for assessing the stroke volume and cardiac output in point-of-care settings

Abstract Background Stroke volume (SV) and cardiac output (CO) are basic hemodynamic parameters which aid in targeting organ perfusion and oxygen delivery in critically ill patients with hemodynamic instability. While there are several methods for obtaining this data, the use of transthoracic...

Ultrasound-guided insertion of intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation in intensive care: description of the technique

Abstract Intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation (IAoBC) is a mechanical circulatory support device that has been used for more than 50 years, mainly for cardiogenic shock. Although its effect on mortality is controversial, IAoBC is still used in a wide variety of pre- and postoperative clinical settings in cardiac surgery centers....

Sonographic signs and patterns of COVID-19 pneumonia

Abstract The pandemic of COVID-19 is seriously challenging the medical organization in many parts of the world. This novel corona virus SARS-CoV-2 has a specific tropism for the low respiratory airways, but causes severe pneumonia in a low percentage of patients. However, the rapid spread of the infection during this pandemic is...
