ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY IN CHILDREN • Doppler Echocardiographic Features of Pulmonary Vein Stenosis in Ex-Preterm Children

PVS in children causes significant morbidity and mortality (estimated 3-year survival rate of 43%). While diagnosis can be made with computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac catheterization, and echocardiography, only echocardiography which has the advantage of low cost and good saf...

ORIGINAL RESEARCH • Diagnostic Utility of Point of Care Ultrasound in Identifying Cervical Spine Injury in Emergency Settings

CT scan has emerged as a good screening tool in C-spine injury due to its high negative predictive value. However, in a hemodynamically unstable trauma patient, many clinical guidelines do not recommend CT scan, which results in delayed clearance of C-spine in these unstable patients.......

SHORT COMMUNICATION • Design and Comparison of a Hybrid to a Traditional In-Person Point-of-Care Ultrasound Course

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) reduces procedural complications, improves diagnostic accuracy, and increases provider and patient satisfaction. In addition, the availability of less expensive ultrasound devices and the increasing accessibility of training programs have facilitated the growth of PO...

CASE REPORT • Perioperative Point-of-Care Ultrasound for Diagnosis of Acute Lower Extremity Arterial Thrombosis After Total Hip Arthroplasty Revision

In their conclusions, the author comment on the rare complication of acute arterial occlusion after hip arthroplasty, which can lead to devastating outcomes. In the immediate postoperative period, it may be difficult to rely on clinical presentation of acute limb ischemia to provide a timely diagno...

VALVULAR HEART DISEASE • Natural History of Moderate Aortic Stenosis with Preserved and Low Ejection Fraction

The authors of this study sought to evaluate if moderate AS is associated with increased mortality in comparison with propensity-matched patients, stratified by ejection fraction (EF), and transaortic gradient, which potentially may justify AV replacement by TAVR ......

BRIEF RESEARCH COMMUNICATION • The Impact of Norepinephrine on Myocardial Perfusion in Critical Illness

Myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) is a well-validated method of qualitative and quantitative assessment of myocardial perfusion in the non-critically ill. Therefore, the authors' goal was to investigate whether MCE can be used to assess norepinephrine-related perfusion abnormalities ......

RESEARCH • Lung Ultrasound in a Tertiary Intensive Care Unit Population: A Diagnostic Accuracy Study

Etiology of respiratory failure in ICU patients include cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE), acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), atelectasis, and pneumonia . Chest X-ray and thoracic computed tomography (CT) are still the most common diagnostic modalities of ICU patients with respiratory failu...
