A picture is worth a 1000 words...

Hey everyone!

Here is a new case. For the purposes of HIPAA and patient/provider anonymity, I will not post any details. (Plus, I think the clips speak for themselves.) Cardiac POCUS shown in clips.

Discussion questions:
• What probe(s) is/are being used?
• What views were obtained?
• How do you interpret these images/findings?

Let me know your thoughts and I’ll post my own next week (9/29/20).

Ok... no comments... perhaps the clips are the self-explanatory?

These are parasternal long axis and apical 4 chamber views with a phased array probe. There appears to be something in the LV that should not be there (pig tail catheter).

If you have an interesting finding or POCUS application, please reach out to share it with us on the blog!
