The intrapleural volume threshold for ultrasound detection of pneumothoraces: An experimental study on porcine models
(BioMed Central, 2013-03-01)
Background: Small pneumothoraxes (PTXs) may not impart an immediate threat to trauma patients after chest injuries. However, the amount of pleural air may increase and become a concern for patients who require positive pressure ...
Animal Laboratory Training Improves Lung Ultrasound Proficiency and Speed
Background: Although lung ultrasound (US) is accurate in diagnosing pneumothorax (PTX), the training requirements and methods necessary to perform US examinations must be defined. Objective: Our aim was to test whether ...
