Lung Ultrasound for Acute Chest Syndrome

Accuracy & Satisfaction

By Delia Gold on 03/15/21 04:00 AM

Acute chest syndrome is such a great application for lung ultrasound, especially in pediatrics where we do everything we can to dodge the harmful affects of ionizing radiation. We have covered this once before on the podcast, but it was ages ago. This is a recent well-done study that takes another look to see how ultrasound compares to the commonly employed chest radiography. Join the GEL Jr team as they discuss how this might play out in practice!

Integrated Lung Ultrasound for the Diagnosis of COVID-19

Better than PCR?!

By Michael Prats on 02/01/21 04:00 AM

Look - we're sorry. We know you are sick of COVID-19, but when this came across our desk we knew it was important. So far we know that point-of-care lung ultrasound is accurate for the diagnosis and even that extent of sonographic findings can correlate with the severity of disease. Now we ask - could it provide a superior diagnostic strategy to even our beloved PCR??

Shoulder Dislocation Revisited

A Better Way to Diagnose?

By Michael Prats on 08/03/20 05:00 AM

People have been using POCUS to diagnosis shoulder dislocation for a while now, although it is far from standard of care in most places. We have seen that it is really accurate compared to xray, but this well-done study adds some important information to the existing literature. They measure the glenohumeral distance in an attempt to make a quantifiable cut-off point for dislocation. They also take a look at potential time savings of ultrasound compared to xray!
