It specifically deals with findings of immediate clinical relevance throughout the body. New emergency applications of ultrasound in the abdomen, the vessels, the head and the heart are considered.
The major topic, the lung, is extensively discussed. Interventional ultrasound forms part of nearly every chapter.
General ultrasound in the critically ill / Edition 1
Flow charts simplify daily concerns: acute dyspnea, shock, unexplained fever, etc. The strong points and pitfalls of ultrasound are reviewed. Technical notes are mingled with general considerations. Benefiting from the extensive experience of an intensivist intimately familiar with ultrasound, this book accurately answers most daily problems arising in the critically ill. All in all, General ultrasound in the critically ill provides a key for practicing a kind of visual medicine. Since Daniel Lichtenstein has been an intensivist in a medical ICU which already occupied a pioneering place in echocardiography.
He has from the beginning devoted his efforts to the development of general ultrasound. He regularly publishes studies on lung ultrasound, his main topic, in the international literature.

For instance, as data revealed in Fig 1 , has included The Fig 1 and Fig 2 have provided the information that Nevertheless, we could adapt those similar researches and discoveries into our study and our utilized experiment design which based on the advanced and detailed CCUS exam.
Moreover, by comparing with other monitoring or imaging equipments, the ultrasound device can visually focus on both heart and lung at the bedside, which highlights the valuable of the CCUS. In this study, only Actually, there are many other methods in the position to evaluate the volume status and responsiveness, such as the respiratory variations of aortic blood flow, respiratory variations of common carotid artery blood flow, passive leg raising test, etc[ 47 ].
However, it was reasonable that they did not choose the parameters, since some of these variables were not well proved to be reliable by large sample trials,. In this setting, we have the amount of works to do when discussing the volume assessment by ultrasound. Fluid overload was significantly associated with higher mortality and morbidity among ICU patients, while discharge the excess fluid promptlymay contribute a better outcome [ 49 , 50 ]. In this study, we found a high rate of fluid overload by IVC exam Furthermore, our study showed that the CCUS on admission contribute to predicting the patient outcome.
Nevertheless, other parameters may contribute to a worse outcome, such as high LUS score, severe LV dysfunction, etc. This study also has couple limitations. First, being designed as a retrospective study, although we have two attendings to double check the data and identify the variables strictly according the standard and guidelines, the results still might be affected by the sampling error, and the prognosis analysis was not as credible as a prospective cohort study.
Moreover, the objects of this study were extracted from the leading largest teaching hospital in Western China. The third, the high-quality bedside ultrasound needs well-trained physicians and guided by the well-defined protocol. Despite those limitations, this study has provided a significant sample of relevant information about the cardiorespiratory epidemic characteristic assessed by admission ultrasound exam, which showed a full sight of the ICU patients on admission and may be valuable for the clinical diagnosis and therapy plan decision making and subsequent design of clinical trials related to CCUS.
A well designed prospective cohort study might be conducted to address those limitations we mentioned above. Hence, it merits more attention in clinical decision making. Browse Subject Areas?

Methods We have described and analyzed the epidemic characteristics of hemodynamics and lung pathology assessed by CCUS on ICU admission, which based on our database of cases from the biggest medical center in Western China, between November and October Results The mean age of the patients was Conclusion CCUS examination on ICU admission which performed by the experienced physician provide valuable information to assist the caregivers in understanding the comprehensive outlook of the characteristics of hemodynamics and lung pathology.
Funding: The authors received no specific funding for this work. Introduction Focused Critical care ultrasound examinations CCUS in the critical care setting have been adopted widely and becoming an extension of the clinical critical care hemodynamic monitoring, lung pathology diagnosis and other organ function assessment because of their rapid, precise detection capabilities [ 1 — 9 ]. Results Demographic and clinical characteristic The study included cases that admitted to ICU with in one year period.
