Ecografía pulmonar 🫁. Guía fácil y práctica de como utilizarla. ABRO HILO
#POCUS #CardioEd #echofirst #ENARM #medicaleducation #ultrasound #MedEd #Cardiology Image
Es curioso porque clásicamente se decía que la ecografía pulmonar no era posible. Harrison afirmaba que " los ultrasonidos (US) se disipan rápidamente en el aire por lo que carecen de utilidad en la evaluación del parénquima pulmonar" ¿Qué ha cambiado? Image
Daniel Lichtenstein, un intensivista francés, redescubrió la ecografía pulmonar. Es cierto que los US no se transmiten bien por el aire, pero Lichtensein descubrió que pequeñas alteraciones en la relación aire-agua a nivel pulmonar formaban artefactos ecográficos característicos. Image

3/ Clot is in a constant state of evolution. #Fibrin—> #Collagen.
 
Unfortunately many patients present in the subacute or late phase of #clot development which hinders many of our treatment approaches.

We’ve seen how to measure VTI and stroke volume with #ultrasound
Our next #FUSIC haemodynamic question brought to you by @icultrasonica, @wilkinsonjonny and I is:

Q2. Does SV respond to fluid, vasopressors or inotropes?

#echofirst #POCUS #haemodynamics #foamed
In Q1 we saw how to measure stroke volume (SV). Q2 helps us manage someone with an inappropriately low SV. Pressors, fluids and inotropes are all treatment options. If If used correctly, they will ↑SV. If not, they won’t, and they may even be harmful.
Measuring VTI before and after each of these interventions will therefore easily show you if they have worked. But can we predict which one is likely to work before we give drugs or a drop of fluid? 1st, let’s go back to some physiology.

What are the key clinical questions about haemodynamics that ultrasound can answer?

@icmteaching, @wilkinsonjonny and I are going to take you through the 10 most important…

starting with...

Q1. Is stroke volume abnormal?

#FUSIC #echofirst #POCUS #ultrasound #haemodynamics
Despite shock being such an important diagnosis, intensive care clinicians are rubbish at detecting a low or high cardiac output (CO) clinically.

Sensitivity of detecting cardiac index (CI) < 2 clinically in this study was 0!

sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
From an apical 5- or 3-chamber view we can use PW Doppler to assess the velocity time integral (VTI) in the LVOT to determine blood flow.

Essentially, LVOT VTI is the average distance travelled by ejected blood during one contraction...

It is also known as stroke distance.

Did you adequately numb the peritoneum for your paracentesis?

If it looks like this then yes! Yes, you did. Congratulations. Your patient thanks you (and may ask for you by name next time!)

#ultrasound #irad #MedTwitter #MedEd #POCUS
For any intra abdominal needle passage, pain crossing the skin and peritoneum (sometimes muscles too) are worst. The 25G lido needle isn't too bad, but if you try to pass a 5 French without good local anesthesia, they're going to feel it.
Paracentesis is a great procedure for learning US/needle skills. Make sure you 👀your needle tip OVERLYING the deepest, echogenic, anterior abdominal wall layer and numb, numb, numb. If that layer pushes away from you, chase it with your needle!

Desde el grupo de @ecosemes y @EcosemesA queremos demostrar la gran importancia que tiene el abordaje de SARS-CoV-2 desde el punto de vista ecográfico con 3 casos clínicos. La importancia de #POCUS ¡Abrimos hilo! 👇🧵
1) Mujer 66 años. Tos persistente de 7 días. Fiebre el primer día. Acude por astenia hace 2 días. Satura al 96% con 16 rpm. ¿Te ayudaría la ecografía para sospechar altamente de COVID y planificar tu manejo?
¿O quizás esperamos mejor a la PCR-COVID? Esta paciente tiene 7 días desde el inicio de los síntomas; no sería candidata al test de antígeno rápido.

Not only do we diagnose complex nerve conditions we also treat them!

We diagnosed pudendal neuropathy using #MR #Neurography and then ablate the nerve using #CT ImageImage
We also use #MR #Neurography for planning #CT guided nerve injections ImageImage
Not just #MR and #CT, we routinely do complex (and simple) procedures using #ultrasound, like this #barbotage we performed for a young patient who had immediate pain relief. ImageImage

3 things you should know about cancer of the womb

1️⃣ 1 in 90 women have a life-time risk of having it

2️⃣ It often manifests with vaginal bleeding, especially after menopause

3️⃣ You can take steps to prevent it.

A thread 🧵

{Retweet for awareness!} Image
What increased your risk of having cancer if the womb?

- Obesity
- Late menopause (after 52 years)
- High estrogen levels
- Nuliparous (not giving birth)
- Diabetes
- Drugs e.g. tamoxifen, tibolone
- Family history of womb cancer esp in your mother, sister or daughter.
Once a womb cancer is suspected, two common tests can be done to confirm it;

- Trans-vaginal #ultrasound scan: the walls of the uterus might be more than 4mm thick

- Womb tissue can be taken out (#biopsy) for histology: highly definitive if done using hysteroscopy

1/ Hey #IDFellows, here is a new #IDTwitter Tweetorial: 24F w/1 wk hx pharyngitis + 1d cough & SOB. VS T 39.3C, RR 23, SpO2 92%, HR 112. Exam with tonsillar swelling & erythema; L neck pain and swelling on palpation. CXR w/peripheral nodular opacities. Best empiric abx?
2/ Lemierre’s syndrome = #eponym for suppurative thrombophlebitis of the jugular vein. Often preceded by pharyngitis +/- neck swelling. Commonly associated with pulmonary septic emboli. Check these #NEJM Clinical Images:
3/ Most common organisms include Fusobacterium necrophorum >>> other fusobacterium > anaerobic streptococci. Fusobacterium necrophorum, an anaerobic gram-negative rod, seems to be distinctively adept at causing septic thrombophlebitis.

1/ #Nephrology #POCUS case study:
Dr. X is rounding on an ESRD pt who initially presented with dyspnea after missing a dialysis (HD) session; underwent dialysis in the hospital. Pt asymptomatic at the time of exam and lung #ultrasound revealed 👇 Further story in thread #MedEd
2/ Based on the 2-zone lung #POCUS, Dr. X orders for another session of HD. Notably, pt says he is at his 'dry weight' and HD nurse says they could only get 1.5L off during first session. Dr. X doesn't change his/her mind.
Info on various lung scan zones👇
3/ Patient becomes hypotensive during HD and only ~500cc fluid could be removed.
Why can't we get more fluid out of a hypervolemic patient? Dr. X is perplexed and decides to more #POCUS Here is the IVC

#POCUS teaching case: #Dialysis patient c/o sob, reports weight gain. BP low to begin with (~100-110 mmHg systolic) & drops further during ultrafiltration. Dr. X performs IVC #ultrasound at the bedside and sees this 👇 - probably volume depleted? See #thread
#MedEd #nephrology
2/ Dr. X orders to stop ultrafiltration. BP stabilized a little bit.
All done?
Wait, something doesn't make sense. Why did the patient gain weight? (usually #dialysis patients know their dry weight well). Why sob?
In the meanwhile, radiology tech performs chest #X-ray 👇
3/ That's not good. Diagnosis is apparent but lets get Dr. Y who does more than just IVC #POCUS

Is it possible to use Mobile Speakers for high frequency sound output to brain control, trigger agony, insomnia and permanent conditioning personality? 🤔
How would a country use it against another country during War? 😨 #ultrasound #soundengineering #sound #audio
If long term insomnia is caused by high frequency controlled audio that itself could lead to heart failure! So, this is very dangerous.

In the midst of COVID-19, @GeorgeCondous and I entirely missed the release of our article in @ContempOBGYN last week!

NON-INVASIVE #ULTRASOUND DIAGNOSIS OF #ENDOMETRIOSIS

contemporaryobgyn.net/endometriosis-…

This is a comprehensive review article accompanied by 17 videos!
This article should be read by anyone interested in endometriosis: sonographers, radiologists, gynecologists who want to learn how to perform ultrasound, gynecologists who want their sonogs/rads to start perform/interpreting ultrasound for endometriosis, patients, advocates, etc
I will share each video in its own tweet.

The videos depict normal and abnormal anatomy, including superficial, ovarian, deep endometriosis, rectouterune pouch obliteration, ovarian fixation.

They are accompanied by captions.

#POCUS not 🐇🎩, not short #TTE
2/ Current #goals #Cardiac #POCUS #MedEd

(1) introduce concepts of ultrasound- common imaging views, correlate with anatomy, & physical examination skills

(2) develop scanning techniques➡️ basic competence

(3) recognize & differentiate b/w normal anatomy & basic pathology
3/ When Do We Start? Prerequisite knowledge for #POCUS teaching
