lung ultrasound in the critically ill the blue protocol

lichtenstein, daniel a.

written by a pioneer in critical care ultrasound, this book discusses the basic technique and “signatures” of lung ultrasound and explains its main clinical applications. the tools and clinical uses of the blue protocol, which allows diagnosis of most cases of acute respiratory failure, are first described in detail. careful attention is then devoted to protocols derived from the blue protocol – the falls protocol for diagnosis and management of acute circulatory failure, the pink protocol for use in ards, and the sesame protocol for use in cardiac arrest – and to the luci-flr program, a means of answering clinical questions while reducing radiation exposure. finally, the book discusses all the possible settings in which lung ultrasound can be used, discipline by discipline and condition by condition. lung ultrasound in the critically ill comprehensively explains how ultrasound can become the stethoscope of modern medicine. it is a superb complement to the author’s previous book, whole body ultrasonography in the critically ill.

i c u chest radiology principles and case studies

by 41vw7rpwm4l

  • harold moskowitz (author)

 

a practical, highly useful guide to the principles of i.c.u. chest radiology, complete with case studies and radiographs on cd

for critically ill patients in a hospital’s i.c.u., a portable chest radiograph is the most helpful, and most commonly used, x-ray examination. cardiopulmonary complications and the malposition of lines, tubes, and catheters are often initially detected on a portable chest film. it is essential for hospital personnel to know how to approach and read these films, and yet little attention has been paid to teaching the accurate evaluation of this crucial diagnostic tool.

the first book in more than a decade to specifically address this topic, i.c.u. chest radiology is an authoritative and concise guide to interpreting portable chest film; identifying and correcting any abnormal positions in the various devices inserted into the vascular and respiratory systems; and diagnosing abnormalities of the cardiopulmonary system. radiology expert dr. harold moskowitz outlines his approach and philosophy toward x-ray interpretation of the i.c.u. patient—one that can be used daily and in any i.c.u. setting.

divided into ten straightforward chapters, the book begins with a discussion of the physics necessary to obtain a proper film and moves on to the more clinical problems encountered each day in the i.c.u.—such as airspace disease, barotrauma, pneumonia, congestive failure, and malalignment of tubes and lines. throughout, moskowitz points out specific findings that can often make a difference in a patient’s management. supporting these detailed chapters is a cd featuring real-life case studies and radiographic images that simulate common problems in the i.c.u. this is a unique way for readers to prepare to handle the all-too-common scenario: the 2:00 a.m. call from an i.c.u. nurse that a patient has “crashed” and needs attention. using knowledge gleaned from the chapters, the reader is encouraged to study the radiograph in each case, identify the various problems, determine the clinical condition that caused deterioration in the patient, and plan a course of action. readers can test themselves with the cases and then listen as moskowitz discusses the pertinent findings on the film.

i.c.u. chest radiology is essential reading for those who work in or are associated with i.c.u.s—radiologists, intensivists, hospitalists, emergency room physicians, residents, medical students, physician assistants, respiratory therapists, and nurses. it will also be a valuable guide for personnel who work in step down units and emergency rooms.

the purpose of this atlas is to illustrate how to achieve reliable diagnoses when confronted by the different abnormalities, or “disease patterns”, that may be visualized on ct scans of the chest. the task of pattern recognition has been greatly facilitated by the advent of multidetector ct (mdct), and the focus of the book is very much on the role of state-of-the-art mdct. a wide range of disease patterns and distributions are covered, with emphasis on the typical imaging characteristics of the various focal and diffuse lung diseases. in addition, clinical information relevant to differential diagnosis is provided and the underlying gross and microscopic pathology is depicted, permitting ct–pathology correlation. the entire information relevant to each disease pattern is also tabulated for ease of reference. this book will be an invaluable handy tool that will enable the reader to quickly and easily reach a diagnosis appropriate to the pattern of lung abnormality identified on ct scans.
