PREMIUM CHAPTERS

1

Introduction

 

In this chapter, we present a brief history of ultrasound and discuss the emerging field of non-traditional sonographers who simultaneously scan and treat their patients at the bedside. This module represents the first step towards an expertise in the sonographic evaluation of pediatric...

2

Ultrasound Physics

 

In this chapter, you will learn the basics of ultrasound physics; enough to maximize your sonographic imaging, but not so much as to take the fun out of point-of-care pediatric ultrasound. From frequency and resolution to sonographic artifacts, you will have a firm understanding of ultrasound...

3

Vascular access

 

In this chapter, you will learn the tips and tricks to capably perform an ultrasound-guided peripheral or central venous line. This indispensable skill-set will impress your nurses and help your patients.

4

Trauma ultrasound

 

In this chapter, we discuss ultrasound imaging in the pediatric trauma victim. As part of the FAST (Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma) scan, you will learn to recognize blood in the peritoneal cavity, pericardial sac, and thoracic space.

5

Abdomen & retroperitoneum

 

In this chapter, we focus on the inferior vena cava (with pediatric-specific considerations), liver and biliary structures, the spleen, and the kidneys/bladder.

6

Appendicitis, Intussusception & Pyloric Stenosis

 

In this chapter, we provide a step-wise approach to the appendix; how to find it and how to determine if it is pathologic.

7

Soft Tissue & Musculoskeletal

 

In this chapter, we cover a range of soft tissue pathology and the sonographic appearance of everything “under the skin”. We also discuss the musculoskeletal system, including the sonographic evaluation of fractures, the elbow, the shoulder, the knee, and the hip.

8

Cardiac Ultrasound

 

In this chapter, we evaluate the pediatric heart from a variety of “windows” and “views”.

9

Pulmonary Ultrasound

 

In this chapter you will learn about pulmonary scanning - one of the newest and most exciting areas of pediatric ultrasound.

10

Critical Care Ultrasound

 

In this chapter, we evaluate shock by assessing for left ventricular dysfunction, central venous pressure, and intra-peritoneal or pulmonary pathology.
