Pocket-size imaging devices may represent a tool for fast initial cardiac screening in the emergency setting. Pocket-size cardiac ultrasound (PCU) examinations performed by experienced echocardiographers yield acceptable diagnostic accuracy compared to standard echocardiogram (SE). However, the success of this method when used by unselected(More)
BACKGROUND Patients evaluated for acute and chronic chest pain comprise a large, heterogeneous group that often provides diagnostic challenges. Although speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) has proved to have diagnostic value in acute coronary syndrome it is not commonly incorporated in everyday practice. The purpose of the present systematic review was(More)
Arrhythmias in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) might be due in part to altered autonomic heart rate control caused by altered right ventricle hemodynamics. This study investigated autonomic heart rate control in adolescents with ToF at rest and during unloading of the right ventricle. A total of 17 patients with ToF and 56 healthy controls(More)
BACKGROUND Focus Cardiac Ultrasound (FoCUS) performed by internal medicine residents on call with 2 h of training can provide a means for ruling out cardiac disease, but with poor sensitivity. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate diagnostic usefulness as well as diagnostic accuracy of FoCUS following 4 h of training. METHODS All residents on(More)
