This book addresses the wide range of issues that face the program leader – from how to choose a site and how to negotiate for equipment, to how to determine staffing requirements and how to anticipate and defuse possible turf issues with other programs and services in the hospital or healthcare facility. The early chapters of this book focus on the leadership of your program whether in your department or institution. The second section centers on education at all levels recognizing that smaller machines have made ultrasound available for medical students to advanced practitioners. The third section provides detailed logistics on equipment, maintenance, and safety. The fourth section focuses on a quality improvement program and includes a chapter on the workflow process. For those with limited budgets we also offer a section on practical operating and educational solutions. The fifth section offers insight into hospital level credentialing, quality assurance, national politics, and recent issues with accreditation. This is followed by reimbursement and coding. The last section covers topics in specialized communities. Chapters focus on ultrasound in global health, emergency medical services, pediatrics, critical care, community and office based practices. Multiple US working documents including checklists, graphs, spreadsheets, tables, and policy appendices are included.

Background and aim: Pediatric emergency department (PED) physicians frequently encounter children with symptoms that warrant ocular fundoscopic evaluation. Lack of cooperation, ocular or periorbital trauma, contraindications to mydriasis and photophobia may hinder direct fundoscopic evaluation. Bedside PED ocular point of care ultrasound is a useful tool in the evaluation of the eye and enables the visualization of the ocular anatomy. It is radiation free, rapid, low cost, does not require mydriasis or sedation and is performed on closed eyelids with minimal or no cooperation from the patient. Several publications have described the application of ocular POCUS to diagnose ocular and orbital anomalies such as trauma and orbital masses. We aim to demonstrate the feasibility and efficacy of POCUS in assessing ocular complaints by PED physicians.Methods: Clinical case presentationResults: A 2 months old baby boy presented to the PED after his parents noticed right leucocoria in a cellular phone photograph. The baby was irritable when fundoscopy was attempted hence ocular POCUS was performed using a linear transducer (Phillips CX50, L8-12 MHz) and demonstrated a right eye retinal mass nasal to the optic disc (Fig 1). The patient was referred to an ophthalmologist who confirmed the diagnosis of Retinoblastoma. The patient underwent MRI yielding the same diagnosis (Fig 2) followed by surgery within 2 weeks of the PED visit.Conclusion: We suggest that ocular POCUS is safe, fast and easy to perform in the PED setting in uncooperative patients and facilitates rapid, accurate diagnosis and treatment.

You can take notes on the cards, check off the scans that you’ve done, and of course, refer to them in order to provide your patients with the best care possible.

Use of Point of Care Ultrasound to Guide Pediatric Gastrostomy Tube Replacement in the Emergency Department

Abstract : Abstract: The presentation of a pediatric patient to the emergency department for a malfunctioning or dislodged gastrostomy tube (G-tube) is not uncommon. As such, these tubes are often replaced at the bedside. Improper placement can result in a number of complications, including perforation, fistula tract formation, peritonitis, and sepsis. The current criterion standard method to confirm proper G-tube placement is contrast-enhanced radiography. However, point-of-care ultrasound may be an alternative method to guide and confirm pediatric G-tube replacement in the emergency department. We report a series of cases on this novel point-of-care ultrasound application.
