Pediatric POCUS

About this Research Topic

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) allows real-time bedside assessment of sick pediatric patients for both diagnostic assessment of the heart, lung, abdomen, brain but also for procedural purposes, especially line placement and fluid removal (echo-guided procedures). It is a useful adjunct to the physical examination and other monitoring tools especially in the emergency or critical care settings. Ultrasound assessment should be quick, repeatable, is harmless to the patient and is performed to answer specific questions. It allows qualitative or semi-quantitative assessment. of hemodynamics in critically ill children. Awareness of its current use and limitations is important to all physicians if we want POCUS to improve patient’s care and be uniformly accepted by all healthcare professionals.

This research topic will cover common POCUS indications for pediatric patients used mostly in the emergency and critical care settings, with the different organs that can be explored by POCUS as well as the current status of training, certification and research on this topic.


Keywords: POCUS, Pediatrics, Ultrasound, critical care, cardiology
