Femoral artery injuries are a rare complication of blunt trauma in children that require expeditious diagnosis and treatment to prevent permanent limb dysfunction. Point-of-care ultrasonography of femoral vessels is a well-established emergency physician technique for ruling out deep vein thrombosis and guiding femoral vessel catheterization. We present the first report of a pediatric emergency physician diagnosing a traumatic femoral artery thrombus using point-of-care ultrasonography.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the applicability and utility of point-of-care lung ultrasonography (POCLUS) for the diagnosis of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in a pediatric emergency department. METHODS: A prospective observational study on children with suspected CAP was carried out in a pediatric emergency department from August to December 2014. The evaluation of the chest radiography (CR) by two independent radiologists was considered as a reference standard...

OBJECTIVE: The current state of point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) use and education in neonatal-perinatal medicine (NPM) and pediatric critical care medicine (PCCM) is unknown. Our aim was to quantify POCUS use, training and perceptions regarding education and barriers among the United States NPM and PCCM fellowship programs. STUDY DESIGN: A 14-question survey was emailed to the fellowship directors of all the United States NPM and PCCM fellowship programs. RESULTS: The response rate was 55% (52/95) and 59% (39/66) for NPM and PCCM programs, respectively...

Abdominal cerebrospinal fluid pseudocyst is an uncommon complication of ventriculoperitoneal shunt and is seen more commonly in the pediatric population. The diagnosis of an abdominal cerebrospinal fluid pseudocyst is typically made by ultrasonography, which demonstrates a simple or loculated fluid collection in the abdomen. We present a case of abdominal pseudocyst diagnosed by point-of-care ultrasound.

OBJECTIVES: The objective was to determine the test performance characteristics for point-of-care lung ultrasonography (LUS) performed by pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) physicians compared with radiographic diagnosis of acute chest syndrome (ACS) in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) and fever. METHODS: This was a prospective study of patients up to 21 years with SCD and fever requiring chest X-ray (CXR) evaluation for ACS. Before obtaining CXR, a blinded PEM physician performed LUS using a standardized scanning protocol...

OBJECTIVE: Point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) is becoming increasingly available for neonatologists and pediatric subspecialists (PSS); however, concerns over potential litigation from possible missed diagnoses or incorrect management have been documented. This study aims to define the extent and quality of lawsuits filed against neonatologists and PSS related to POCUS. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a retrospective study of all United States reported state and federal cases in the Westlaw database from January 1990 through October 2015...

A 13-year-old adolescent girl with chronic abdominal distention was referred to the pediatric emergency department after the outpatient workup suggested moderate ascites. Point-of-care ultrasonography performed by the emergency physicians ruled out ascites, instead demonstrating a well-circumscribed cystic mass subsequently identified as an ovarian mucinous cystadenoma.

BACKGROUND: A pediatric septic hip is a serious condition that must be recognized and treated as early as possible. We describe the clinical course of children with septic hip that were treated with aspiration of the hip joint in the emergency department (AHED). METHODS: This was a retrospective case series analysis. RESULTS: Between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2014, 17 children with septic hip were diagnosed by emergency physicians using point-of-care ultrasonography...

Jennifer R Marin, Aaron E Kornblith, Stephanie J Doniger
We present two cases of pediatric patients initially presenting with a clinical suspicion of acute appendicitis. In these cases, point-of-care ultrasonography was performed early in the patient's emergency department course, leading to alternate diagnoses. This article highlights a role for point-of-care ultrasound in the diagnoses of two alternate conditions that clinically mimic appendicitis: Meckel diverticulitis and acute ileocecitis. We offer a brief overview of terminology, relevant literature, and ultrasound scanning technique for the right-lower-quadrant point-of-care ultrasound evaluation...

This study was performed to evaluate the feasibility of intraoperative point-of-care trans-fontanellar cerebral ultrasonography (TFCU) to obtain blood flow velocity (BFV) reference values at the internal carotid arteries (ICAs) and peri-callosal part of the anterior cerebral artery (pACA) during pediatric cardiac surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). TFCU was performed at three time points (after induction of anesthesia, during CPB, after CPB) in 35 infants. BFV was measured at both ICAs and pACA through the anterior fontanelle with an ultrasound sector probe...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the test characteristics of point-of-care ultrasonography for the identification of a drainable abscess and to compare the test characteristics of ultrasonography with physical examination. In addition, we sought to measure the extent to which ultrasonography impacts clinical management of children with skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs).

Skin and soft tissue infections are common disease presentations to the pediatric emergency department, and rapid and accurate identification of potentially serious skin and soft tissue infections is critical. In cases of atraumatic musculoskeletal pain with systemic complaints, a bacterial etiology must be ruled out. Point-of-care ultrasonography is increasingly common in the pediatric emergency department and assists in rapid and accurate identification of a variety of disease processes. We present a case of a 14-year-old adolescent boy with atraumatic right knee pain to illustrate the benefits of point-of-care ultrasonography in the timely diagnosis of musculoskeletal and soft tissue pathology...

April 2015 marks the publication of the first national guideline regarding point-of-care ultrasound by pediatric emergency medicine physicians. The joint statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, American College of Emergency Physicians, and World Interactive Network Focused on Critical Ultrasound provides a framework on which pediatric emergency physicians can develop the necessary skills to use point-of-care ultrasound effectively and responsibly.

INTRODUCTION: Emergency medicine point-of-care ultrasonography (EM-PoCUS) is a core competency for residents in the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and College of Family Physicians of Canada emergency medicine (EM) training programs. Although EM-PoCUS fellowships are currently offered in Canada, there is little consensus regarding what training should be included in a Canadian EM-PoCUS fellowship curriculum or how this contrasts with the training received in an EM residency...

REVIEW
Jennifer R Marin, Resa E Lewiss
Emergency physicians have used point-of-care ultrasonography since the 1990 s. Pediatric emergency medicine physicians have more recently adopted this technology. Point-of-care ultrasonography is used for various scenarios, particularly the evaluation of soft tissue infections or blunt abdominal trauma and procedural guidance. To date, there are no published statements from national organizations specifically for pediatric emergency physicians describing the incorporation of point-of-care ultrasonography into their practice...

Point-of-care ultrasonography is increasingly being used to facilitate accurate and timely diagnoses and to guide procedures. It is important for pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) physicians caring for patients in the emergency department to receive adequate and continued point-of-care ultrasonography training for those indications used in their practice setting. Emergency departments should have credentialing and quality assurance programs. PEM fellowships should provide appropriate training to physician trainees...
