Sonographic confirmation of intubation: comparison of 3 methods in a pig model All Scholarly Works (2014)
OBJECTIVES: Several recent studies have investigated methods to confirm endotracheal tube (ETT) placement with sonography, using diaphragmatic movement, lung sliding, and transtracheal visualization of the ETT. To our knowledge, no studies have directly compared these ...
Bedside ultrasound AIDS identification and removal of cutaneous foreign bodies: a case series All Scholarly Works (2014)
BACKGROUND: Soft tissue injury with a retained foreign body (FB) is a common emergency department (ED) complaint. Detection and precise localization of these foreign bodies is often difficult with traditional plain radiographic imaging or computed ...

Evaluation of left ventricular function by bedside ultrasound in acute toxic myocarditis. All Scholarly Works (2013)
BACKGROUND: Myocarditis can be difficult to diagnose in the Emergency Department (ED) due to the lack of classic symptoms and the wide variation in presentations. Poor cardiac contractility is a common finding in myocarditis and ...
Single-operator ultrasound-guided intravenous line placement by Emergency Nurses reduces the need for physician intervention in patients with difficult-to-establish intravenous access All Scholarly Works (2013)
BACKGROUND: Emergency physicians (EPs) have become facile with ultrasound-guided intravenous line (USIV) placement in patients for whom access is difficult to achieve, though the procedure can distract the EP from other patient care activities. OBJECTIVES: ...
