This week in POCUS tweets #2
We will start this weakly review with aortic aneurysms:
This interesting new article question the widely adopted practice of assessing fluid responsiveness in intensive care units based on the diameter of the inferior vena cava. The evaluation of carotid artery blood flow is suggested instead by the author as a more reliable method.
An impressive demonstration of the echocardiographic appearance of a supraventricular tachycardia.
Great example of Osgood-Schlatter disease on US.
Another low-hanging fruit for musculoskeletal US: acromioclavicular ligament injuries.
Of course one can simply never see enough cases of appendicitis on US.
Finally, I myself have been toying with US tweets recently. Quite photogenic case of gallstone impaction in the gallbladder neck.
With this we end this week’s selection, stay tuned for the next one!
