The performance of point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS) to diagnose HIV-associated tuberculosis has not been evaluated in large prospective studies. We determined the diagnostic accuracy of individual PoC...
Point of care ultrasound (POCUS) has played a role across almost every medical specialty. Although anesthesiologists have been using bedside ultrasound for nerve blocks and vascular access for many ye...
Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is an emerging clinical tool in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Recent literature describing the use of POCUS for various applications in the NICU has garnere...
Focused ultrasonography or point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) is increasingly considered as an essential bedside diagnostic tool. In patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) treated with hemodi...
The use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) performed by non-radiologists has become more widespread and is entering new arenas of clinical care. Children in particular are prime candidates for ultras...
This study will aim to determine whether routine Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) assessment of volume status, cardiac function, and pulmonary function after major abdominal aortic surgery...
Pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) physicians are increasingly utilizing point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS). There is currently limited data regarding POCUS evaluation for intussusception in...
Pulmonary aspiration of gastric contents is uncommon in the elective, surgical populations, but highly prevalent in trauma patients who requires emergency surgery as trauma impair gastric ...
Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been found to be useful for aiding in the prediction of fluid responsiveness. It is unknown if trainees can effectively utilize this tool to improve th...
This VA QUERI Partnered Evaluation Initiative will evaluate the impact of an immersive Point-of-care Ultrasound (POCUS) Training Course on provider skill acquisition and retention; the fre...
Evaluation procedures that focus on both the outcome or status (OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT) of the patient at the end of an episode of care - presence of symptoms, level of activity, and mortality; and the process (ASSESSMENT, PROCESS) - what is done for the patient diagnostically and therapeutically.
Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)
Evaluation and measurement of nutritional variables in order to assess the level of nutrition or the NUTRITIONAL STATUS of the individual. NUTRITION SURVEYS may be used in making the assessment.
Volume of circulating blood in a region of the brain. It is a functional measure of the brain perfusion status which relates changes in this to changes in CEREBROVASULAR CIRCULATION that are often seen in brain diseases.
The volume of packed RED BLOOD CELLS in a blood specimen. The volume is measured by centrifugation in a tube with graduated markings, or with automated blood cell counters. It is an indicator of erythrocyte status in disease. For example, ANEMIA shows a low value; POLYCYTHEMIA, a high value.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
