BACKGROUND Although thoracic ultrasonography accurately determines the size and extent of occult pneumothoraces (PTXs) in spontaneously breathing patients, there is uncertainty about patients receiving positive pressure ventilation. We compared the lung point (ie, the area where the collapsed lung still adheres to the inside of the chest wall) using the two(More)
Right ventricular (RV) failure due to chronic pressure overload is a main determinant of outcome in congenital heart disease. Medical management is challenging because not only contractility but also the interventricular relationship is important for increasing cardiac output. This study evaluated the effect of milrinone alone and in combination with(More)

Objectives Small pneumothoraxes (PTXs) may not impart an immediate threat to trauma patients after chest injuries. However, if these patients require positive pressure ventilation even a small amount of pleural air may be relevant. Point-of-care lung ultrasonography (US) is a reliable tool in the diagnosis of PTX, but the performance characteristics(More)
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 ventilation or air ambulance transport. Lung ultrasonography (US) is a reliable tool in finding intrapleural air, but the(More)
