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/


VExUS

The Venous Excess Ultrasound Grading System & Acute Kidney Injury

By Michael Prats on 09/28/20 04:00 AM

You may have heard whispers of a magical new way to determine if your patient has too much fluid on board. The VExuS (Venous Excess UltraSound) grading system has been described as a way to use the IVC in combination with abdominal organ doppler in order to determine the degree of venous congestion. This is the first study that takes a look at the VExUS system to see if it can predict acute kidney injury in post-operative patients. https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/99 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7142196/


The FASH Exam

Diagnosing TB in HIV

By Michael Prats on 04/27/20 05:00 AM

The FASH exam is not just a typo when trying to write about the FAST exam. FASH stands for Focused Assessment with Sonography for HIV-associated Tuberculosis (TB). This exam combines various body areas to look for evidence of TB. You can look for extra fluid (pericardial, pleural, ascites), enlarged abdominal lymph nodes, and solid organ lesions (spleen, liver). This has been described for a while, but there have not been many studies on how accurate it might be...until now. https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/90 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31904699
