OBJECTIVES: Bedside ultrasound is increasingly being used to guide fluid management in shocked patients. Little data exist on the inter-rater reliability of techniques used, especially when performed by nonexpert trainee doctors. The primary aim of this study is to measure the inter-rater reliability of five ultrasound techniques commonly used to guide fluid management: inferior vena cava collapsibility index (IVCCI), transthoracic echocardiography (TTE)-derived stroke volumes, ultrasound cardiac output monitor (USCOM) derived stroke volume and carotid artery blood flow and corrected flow time measurements...

Trauma is a major problem in the United States. Mortality from trauma is the number one cause of death under the age of 45 in the US and is the third leading cause of death for all age groups. There are nearly 200,000 deaths per year due to trauma in the US at a cost of over $671 billion in combined health care costs and lost productivity. Unsurprisingly, trauma accounts for about 30% of all life-years lost in the US. Due to immense development of trauma systems, a large majority of trauma patients survive the injury but then go on to die from complications arising from the injury...

Clinicians have strong opinions about whether they should be provided the clinical history before or after bedside testing. We hypothesized that diagnostic accuracy is improved when a concordant clinical history is provided before a diagnostic test. To investigate whether the timing (before or after) and the consistency (concordant vs discordant) of the clinical history in the setting of focused bedside echocardiography affects clinician diagnostic accuracy and management decisions. Thirty-two cardiology residents were asked to perform a bedside echocardiogram on a Vimedix 3D mannequin...

Adequate assessment of fluid status is an imperative objective in the management of all types of patients in cardiology, intensive care, and especially nephrology. Fluid overload is one of the most common modifiable risk factors directly associated with hypertension, heart failure, left ventricular hypertrophy, and eventually, higher morbidity and mortality risk in these categories of patients. Different methods are commonly used to determine fluid status (eg, clinical assessment, natriuretic peptide concentrations, echocardiography, inferior vena cava measurements, or bioimpedance analysis)...

Point-of-care echocardiography is revolutionizing the management of patients presenting with undifferentiated shock and cardiac arrest in the emergency department (ED). Its primary purpose is to aid the clinician in rapidly ruling in and ruling out life-threatening diagnoses at the bedside. In addition, it has become an important component of the clinical examination for stable patients seen in the ED with nonspecific signs and symptoms such as shortness of breath or syncope. Although first described to facilitate the diagnosis of pericardial effusions and cardiac standstill, ED echocardiography has since evolved and is now widely used by emergency physicians to help diagnose other important cardiovascular pathologic conditions that may be contributing to undifferentiated shock, such as left ventricular failure and right ventricular dilatation resulting from pulmonary embolism...

Functional echocardiography has become an invaluable tool in the pediatric and neonatal intensive care unit. "Point-of-care," "target," or "focus" echocardiography allows bedside cardiac ultrasound evaluation of the hemodynamic status of the patient, helps in directing treatment, thus improves patients care. In order to be able to perform functional echocardiography, it is essential to understand the principles of ultrasound, to know the echocardiographic equipment and settings necessary to acquire the images...

A 77-year-old man presented with acute-onset severe chest pain radiating to the back and elevated blood pressure. Multiphasic computed tomography of the aorta revealed an intimal tear in the descending thoracic aorta which extended both retrograde to the aortic root and antegrade to the infra-renal abdominal aorta. The initial impression, that the images showed a Stanford type B aortic dissection, was because the portion of the false lumen that extended beyond the aortic arch remained unopacified even on delayed phases, making it challenging to assess the extent of the dissection flap...

Background: Bedside non-invasive techniques, such as radial artery tonometry, to estimate hemodynamic parameters have gained increased relevance as an attractive alternative and efficient method to measure hemodynamics in outpatient departments. For our pilot study, we sought to compare cardiac output (CO), and stroke volume (SV) estimated from a radial artery tonometry blood pressure pulse analyzer (BPPA) (DMP-Life, DAEYOMEDI Co., Gyeonggi-do, South Korea) to pulsed-wave Doppler (PWD) echocardiography derived parameters...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the technique and review the utility of bedside lung ultrasound in acute care. SUMMARY: Lung ultrasound is a useful point-of-care investigation in acute care, especially in patients with dyspnoea or haemodynamic instability. Although normal lung parenchyma is not accessible to ultrasound, distinctive artefacts arising from parietal and visceral pleura indirectly imply the presence of normal lung. As aeration of lung tissue reduces with disease process, visual assessment of several pathologic entities by ultrasound becomes possible...

Cardiovascular diseases are common; therefore, adequate and guideline-based diagnostics and treatment are essential. In addition to an electrocardiogram (ECG) and (treadmill) exercise tests, echocardiography plays the pivotal role in functional cardiac testing. It is permanently available at the bedside and has a high diagnostic accuracy; however, examinations such as cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) as well as nuclear medical imaging, e.g. single proton emission CT (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) are becoming more and more common in clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary embolism can be difficult to diagnose, particularly in those who are hemodynamically unstable and cannot be imaged to confirm the diagnosis. Echocardiography can allow for rapid assessment of patients in shock, but requires adequate transthoracic windows to obtain clinically useful information. Emergency physician-performed transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) may be a useful tool when transthoracic echocardiography fails.

A 19-year-old male patient was admitted to our institute with dyspnea. His medical history had no rheumatic fever or infective endocarditis. Physical examination revealed a diastolic murmur over the aortic area, rales of bilateral lungs. Bedside transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) revealed a severe aortic regurgitation (AR) without aortic valve stenosis and a moderately dilated left ventricle accompanied by an ejection fraction of 55%. The aortic valve could not be clearly demonstrated as either bicuspid or tricuspid...
