The widespread availability of ultrasound (US) technology has increased its use for point of care applications in many health care settings. Focused (point of care) US is defined as the act of bringing US evaluation to the bedside for real-time performance. These images are collected immediately by the practitioner, allowing for direct integration into the physician's medical decision-making process. The real-time bedside diagnostic ability of US becomes a key tool for the management of patients. The purpose of this review is to (1) provide a general description of the use of focused US for bedside procedures; (2) specify the indications and common techniques used in bedside US procedures; and (3) describe the techniques used for each bedside intervention...

Two sets of 5 ultrasound gel phantoms were prepared using a method previously validated to have the same density as human tissue...

In an era of recognizing the risks of radiation exposure, it is important to develop alternatives to radiographs. Bedside ultrasound has become an important adjunct to clinical diagnoses and procedural guidance in the emergency department. We present a case series of two patients who presented to a pediatric emergency department after witnessed coin ingestions. Point-of-care ultrasonography was able to accurately identify the location of each of the coins, at the thoracic inlet and in the stomach, as confirmed by chest radiography...

Bedside ultrasound has become increasingly important as an adjunct to clinical diagnosis and procedures in the emergency department. It is only recently that this modality, which involves no ionizing radiation, has become incorporated into the pediatric emergency department. We report a case of a 10-year-old boy with a suspected subungual wooden foreign body. Bedside ultrasound was used to identify and characterize the foreign body before removal and then to evaluate for any residual foreign body after removal...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the study was to determine if bedside ultrasound (US) and perception of wound foreign bodies (FBs) are useful screening tools for detecting wound FBs in children. METHODS: Prospective consecutive sample of children aged 18 years or younger presenting to a pediatric emergency department with wounds considered by the pediatric emergency department attending physician to be at risk for FBs was enrolled. Patients were asked if they had FB sensation in their wound(s)...
