You are working in a small community ED on an overnight shift. It is AM, and an 8-year-old boy with no significant past medical history arrives with his parents after 2 days of abdominal pain and vomiting that has worsened over the past 24 hours. They deny fever or a change in his bowel movements.

The Spanish Association of Pediatrics has as one of its main objectives the dissemination of rigorous and updated scientific information on the different areas of pediatrics.

Pediatric Anesthesia and Critical Care Journal is an international, peer reviewed, open access journal that publishes high quality original research on all aspects of pediatric and neonatal anesthesia, pediatric and neonatal critical care medicine. This journal features original research articles, review articles, short communications, case reports and letter to the editor. The mission of this journal is also to develop skills in interdisciplinary pediatric fields involving anesthesia, intensive care, pain therapy and ultrasound and technologies applied to regional pediatric blocks and emergency-intensive care in pediatrics.

Emergency bedside ultrasound assessment is well established for adult patients, but has only recently been introduced into everyday clinical practice for the care of pediatric patients. Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound is a concise, practical text which explains the principles of ultrasound, its diagnostic application in all organ systems and its use as a procedural adjunct. Both well-established and innovative applications are described, assisting the practitioner in incorporating ultrasound into daily practice, facilitating patient care and decreasing radiation exposure. Case studies and abundant illustrations enable the reader to study the appropriate techniques in detail and learn from real examples from the pediatric emergency department and intensive care unit.

Cardiac point-of-care ultrasound reveals unexpected, life-threatening findings in two children

Metrics details. The diagnosis of pericardial effusion with cardiac tamponade can at times be elusive in pediatric patients since it is relatively uncommon. Point-of-care ultrasound POCUS can readily be performed at the bedside to assess for the presence of a pericardial effusion, tamponade, and can occasionally yield unexpected results. Two cases where POCUS unexpectedly identified pericardial effusions, with one patient who also had an anterior mediastinal mass. Additionally, it can help expeditiously make life-saving diagnoses, while avoiding unnecessary or potentially costly testing or imaging [ 1 ]. An important POCUS application in the emergency and critical care settings is the focused cardiac examination. The primary goal of focused cardiac POCUS is to identify pericardial effusions, tamponade, and asystole.

Metrics details. It can be used by various specialties and may be broadly divided into diagnostic and procedural applications. US diagnostic capacity in paediatric patients with suspected pneumonia has been studied and debated whereas literature regarding the usefulness of point-of-care echocardiography in the pediatric setting is still limited. Similarly, Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma FAST has become a standard procedure in adult emergency medicine but it is still not well codified in the pediatric practice. Concerning procedural applications of POCUS we identified 4 main groups: peripheral vascular access, bladder catheterizations, identification and drainage of abnormal fluid collections and foreign body identification. Pediatric emergency physicians are encouraged to familiarize with POCUS as it is a safe technology and can be extremely helpful in performing diagnosis, managing critical situations and guiding procedures, which results in globally improving pediatric patients care.

Su, MD,c Aaron E. Fraga, MDg. Machine accessibility and portability will only continue to grow, thus increasing exposure to this technology for both providers and patients. Efforts to build standardized POCUS infrastructure within specialties and institutions are ongoing with the goal of improving patient care and outcomes.

Bedside ultrasound, as performed by the intensivist, is gaining in popularity and has become a powerful tool to understand the physiological state of the critically ill patient and to decrease procedural risks. This review assesses clinical applications of bedside ultrasound in the pediatric intensive care unit. Studies were reviewed by both authors. Intensive care unit, emergency department, or operating rooms, as relevant to application of bedside ultrasound in the pediatric intensive care unit. Bedside ultrasound, as practiced by the pediatric intensivist, has the potential to improve pediatric critical care medicine, but data supporting its use is limited.

Numerous diagnostic and procedural applications show great promise for improving the care of children. Many pediatric providers, however, remain unaware of its potential and ultrasound continues to be under-utilized in both the investigation and management of ill and injured children.

Я люблю. В этот момент в тридцати метрах от них, как бы отвергая мерзкие признания Стратмора, ТРАНСТЕКСТ издал дикий, душераздирающий вопль. Звук был совершенно новым - глубинным, зловещим, нарастающим, похожим на змею, выползающую из бездонной шахты. Похоже, фреон не достиг нижней части корпуса. Коммандер отпустил Сьюзан и повернулся к своему детищу стоимостью два миллиарда долларов. Глаза его расширились от ужаса.

Проверка на наличие вируса, - решительно сказал он себе, стараясь успокоиться.  - Я должен сделать проверку на наличие вируса. Чатрукьян знал: это первое, чего в любом случае потребует Стратмор. Выглянув в пустую шифровалку, он принял решение.

Гигантский компьютер содрогался мелкой дрожью, из густого клубящегося тумана падали капли воды. Сигналы тревоги гремели подобно грому. Коммандер посмотрел на вышедший из строя главный генератор, на котором лежал Фил Чатрукьян. Его обгоревшие останки все еще виднелись на ребрах охлаждения. Вся сцена напоминала некий извращенный вариант представления, посвященного празднику Хэллоуин.

 Si. Si! - вскрикивала она в интервалах между его рывками и впивалась ногтями ему в спину, стараясь ускорить его движения.

 Я знаю.  - Он улыбнулся.  - Но на этот раз, - он вытянул левую руку так, чтобы она попала в камеру, и показал золотой ободок на безымянном пальце, - на этот раз у меня есть кольцо. ГЛАВА 116 - Читайте, мистер Беккер! - скомандовал Фонтейн. Джабба сидел весь потный, положив руки на клавиатуру.

Он ощупал пальцы жертвы, но не обнаружил никакого кольца. Еще. На пальцах ничего. Резким движением Халохот развернул безжизненное тело и вскрикнул от ужаса. Перед ним был не Дэвид Беккер.
