Clinician-performed bedside ultrasound is an exciting new development in medicine. Numerous diagnostic and procedural applications show great promise for improving the care of children. Many pediatric providers, however, remain unaware of its potential and ultrasound continues to be under-utilized in both the investigation and management of ill and injured children. Case Studies in Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound illustrates the utility of bedside ultrasound in a variety of scenarios, including the emergency setting and critical care unit. A wide range of diagnostic and procedural applications are covered in fifty-nine cases, recreating real-life experiences of expert practitioners. The cases are concise and readable, with teaching points that highlight how ultrasound can be used to expedite and focus pediatric care. With hundreds of high-quality images, and video content accompanying many cases, this text is essential reading for pediatricians, emergency physicians, pediatric anesthesiologists and critical care physicians.

  • Accompanying videos illustrate key techniques
  • Hundreds of high-quality images enable learning from real examples
  • Key points are pulled out of each case to give readers the essential take-home messages in an accessible format
