Pediatric POCUS Interpretation

Variability in Learning

By Delia Gold on 02/15/21 04:00 AM

This is the first episode of GEL Jr. - our pediatric series! Hosts Delia Gold and Lianne McLean join Mike in discussing an important article on the learning of pediatric POCUS. These authors studied how participants learned image interpretation from an online POCUS educational system. The findings have many important implications for education and competency! https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/106 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32313857/


Diverticulitis

The Accuracy of POCUS

By Michael Prats on 11/09/20 04:00 AM

Ultrasound of the bowel is a relatively new application for POCUS users. It came into the spotlight proving itself with small bowel obstruction, but now we are slowly peristalsing even further down the colon of indications. You may be surprised to find that you can actually see diverticulitis on ultrasound, but it turns out it's not that hard! The question is - how reliable are the sonographic findings? This study is one of the largest to compare POCUS to CT to investigate this important application. https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/101 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32653332/


COVID-19 Severity

What Can POCUS Tell Us?

By Michael Prats on 09/14/20 04:00 AM

We haven't discussed COVID-19 for a long time, despite the explosion of POCUS articles on how ultrasound can be used during this pandemic. Many of the articles have focused on the accuracy of POCUS for making the diagnosis, or comparing the ultrasound findings to those on CT. These are helpful, but now what we really want are studies that help establish that POCUS is helping with delivering patient care - either diagnostically or prognostically. This article seems to take the first step in this direction by examining the prognostic utility of lung ultrasound in this disease. https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/98 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32728966/
