BACKGROUND: Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been used to identify ingested gastric foreign bodies. Our aim was to describe the sonographic findings of radiopaque and radiolucent gastric foreign bodies (FBs) in children. CASE REPORT: Three children ingested different FBs. Two were confirmed with standard radiographs, one was not identified radiographically but was passed in the stool. All three objects were initially found in the stomach using POCUS. WHY SHOULD AN EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN BE AWARE OF THIS?: With increased training and comfort, emergency physicians may begin to use POCUS for identification and monitoring of ingested FBs in the pediatric population...

OBJECTIVE: Numerous reputable sources for healthcare providers advocate routine imaging to rule out an embedded tooth or fang after a snake bite. The objective of this study was to determine whether these foreign bodies can be reliably excluded by bedside ultrasonography. METHODS: All emergency medicine (EM) residents and faculty at a single institution were invited to participate. Two sets of 5 ultrasound gel phantoms were prepared using a method previously validated to have the same density as human tissue...

Foreign body ingestion is a common indication for imaging children. Ultrasound can be a useful adjunct to serial radiographs for evaluation of foreign bodies in the enteric tract. This case report describes a child who swallowed a single magnetic rock. Follow-up radiographs 4 days later could not determine progression of the foreign body beyond the stomach. Ultrasound was used to locate it, showing a structure with unexpected posterior reverberation artifact in the stomach. This was correlated with a similar magnet in a water bath demonstrating identical reverberation artifact...

Myiasis, or the infiltration of the botfly larvae, is a relatively frequent problem encountered by travelers to parts of Latin America. This is a novel case report that documents a Dermatobia hominis infestation of the left facial region with secondary periorbital cellulitis diagnosed by point-of-care ultrasonography.

In an era of recognizing the risks of radiation exposure, it is important to develop alternatives to radiographs. Bedside ultrasound has become an important adjunct to clinical diagnoses and procedural guidance in the emergency department. We present a case series of two patients who presented to a pediatric emergency department after witnessed coin ingestions. Point-of-care ultrasonography was able to accurately identify the location of each of the coins, at the thoracic inlet and in the stomach, as confirmed by chest radiography...

Bedside ultrasound has become increasingly important as an adjunct to clinical diagnosis and procedures in the emergency department. It is only recently that this modality, which involves no ionizing radiation, has become incorporated into the pediatric emergency department. We report a case of a 10-year-old boy with a suspected subungual wooden foreign body. Bedside ultrasound was used to identify and characterize the foreign body before removal and then to evaluate for any residual foreign body after removal...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the study was to determine if bedside ultrasound (US) and perception of wound foreign bodies (FBs) are useful screening tools for detecting wound FBs in children. METHODS: Prospective consecutive sample of children aged 18 years or younger presenting to a pediatric emergency department with wounds considered by the pediatric emergency department attending physician to be at risk for FBs was enrolled. Patients were asked if they had FB sensation in their wound(s)...
