Clinicians should not regard the use of vasoactive medication is an automatic indication for central venous access, and administration of norepinephrine, dopamine, or phenylephrine by peripheral intravenous access was feasible and safe in this single-center medical intensive care unit.
Thoracic ultrasonography for the pulmonary specialist.
Thoracic ultrasonography applications for the pulmonary specialist, related procedural codes, and reimbursement are summarized and the major concepts are illustrated with cases.

Ultrasound-guided vascular access in critical illness
This review will address the state of US-guided vascular access, including current practice and future directions, and recommend using a systematic protocolized approach for US- guided vascular access in elective clinical situations.
The effect of point-of-care ultrasonography on imaging studies in the medical ICU: a comparative study.
The use of point-of-care ultrasonography in an MICU is associated with a significant reduction in the number of imaging studies performed by the radiology and cardiology services.
Serial Diaphragm Ultrasonography to Predict Successful Discontinuation of Mechanical Ventilation
Diaphragm excursion measured during SBT is an imperfect predictor of the outcome of extubation, and maintenance of diaphragM excursion between A/C and SBT has good performance characteristics by AUC analysis.

Ultrasonography examination indicated that CTPA was not needed in 56 of 96 patients and a screening, point-of-care ultrasonography protocol may predict the need for CTPA, and an alternative diagnosis can be established that correlates with CTPA.
Utility of ultrasonography for detection of gastric fluid during urgent endotracheal intubation
Ultrasonography may have utility in reducing risk of a clinically consequential aspiration event during UEI by identifying patients with gastric fluid content, thereby allowing the UEI team to evacuate gastric contents prior to intubation.
