CASE REPORT • Notching into a Diagnosis—Incorporating Doppler Interrogation into Point-of-Care Ultrasonography to Diagnose a Submassive Pulmonary Embolism.

Often, patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) present with nonspecific symptoms. This, in turn, pose a diagnostic dilemma. The authors present in this case report a case of submassive PE diagnosed in a patient utilizing point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) in the emergency department (ED)....

CASE REPORT • A Simple Algorithm for Differential Diagnosis in Hemodynamic Shock Based on Left Ventricle Outflow Tract Velocity–Time Integral Measurement: A Case Series

Pericardial effusions represent a clinical spectrum of disease ranging from asymptomatic to obstructive shock and can be the etiology of nonspecific cardiopulmonary symptoms, unrecognized shock, and abrupt clinical deterioration. Therefore, identification of pericardial effusion remains challengin...

CASE REPORT • A Simple Algorithm for Differential Diagnosis in Hemodynamic Shock Based on Left Ventricle Outflow Tract Velocity–Time Integral Measurement: A Case Series

Echocardiography has been used in the critical care setting for a long time. Several echocardiographic algorithms have been developed with the aim to guide in the assessment of hemodynamic shock in critically ill patients. These algorithms, however, focus mainly on the heart structural and do not of...

STRAIN ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY IN AORTIC STENOSIS • Multichamber Strain Characterization Is a Robust Prognosticator for Both Bicuspid and Tricuspid Aortic Stenosis

Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the most common congenital cardiac abnormality. It is detected in up to 50% of patients requiring aortic valve replacement (AVR) because of significant aortic stenosis (AS). Patients with BAV-AS are two decades younger, have fewer comorbidities, and exhibit significan...

Unexpected Vascular Ultrasound Findings Prompting Hemodynamic Management in an Infant in Respiratory Failure

Often, use of point-of-care ultrasound modalities at the patient bedside is dichotomized into diagnostic versus procedural ultrasound. However, as described in this case, it is important to recognize the crossover that can occur in procedural ultrasound and the potential for making diagnostic discov...

Effect of an Ultrasound-First Clinical Decision (CD) Tool in Emergency Department Patients with Suspected Nephrolithiasis: A Randomized Trial

The author concluded that implementation of the US-first CDS tool resulted in lower CT use for ED patients with suspected nephrolithiasis, and promoted US use without increasing costs, ED revisits, or additional CT scans performed during ED revisits......

CLINICAL INVESTIGATIONS • Left Ventricular Global Longitudinal Strain in Patients with Moderate Aortic Stenosis

Recent data shows poor long-term survival in patients with moderate aortic stenosis, challenging traditional definitions of AS severity and timing of intervention in these patients. The presence of moderate AS in patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF; ...
