Pediatric Point-of-Care Ultrasound: Unconventional Imaging and Literature Review
The objective of this session is to review interesting pediatric cases and demonstrate how point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) can be used in unconventional ways. In pediatric emergency departments, POCUS has routinely been used for procedural guidance as well as a focused imaging of the heart and abdomen. This session will review how to use POCUS for focused imaging of the neonatal and pediatric head, neck, and chest wall (including breast). After reviewing basic anatomy, experts will share images of interesting pediatric cases. This diverse and novel course will end with a review of the year's top articles in pediatric point-of-care ultrasound.
