BACKGROUND Ultrasonography has been used for the diagnosis of many kinds of lung conditions, but few studies have investigated ultrasound for the diagnosis of neonatal pulmonary atelectasis (NAP). In this study, we evaluated the usefulness of lung ultrasonography for the diagnosis of NPA. METHODS From May 2012 to December 2013, 80 neonates with NPA and 50(More)
Lung ultrasound has been extensively used to diagnose many types of lung disease. This study aimed to evaluate the pulmonary reasons for long-term oxygen dependence (LTOD) in premature infants using lung ultrasound.Lung ultrasound was routinely performed in 50 premature infants clinically diagnosed with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD).Among the 50 patients(More)
BACKGROUND This study explored the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound for diagnosing transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN). METHODS Ultrasound was performed by one export. Patients were placed in a supine, lateral recumbent, or prone position. The probe was placed perpendicular or parallel to the ribs, and each region of the lung was scanned.(More)
The aim of this study was to study the features of lung ultrasonography (LUS) in lung disease and to evaluate the usefulness of LUS in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).All of 3405 neonates included in this study underwent an LUS examination. Diagnoses were based on medical history, clinical manifestation, laboratory examination, and signs on chest(More)
In this paper, we focus on the characteristics of LUS in diagnosing childhood pulmonary disease. LUS is convenient, noninvasive, and free of radiation. It helps in the differentiation of lung diseases. Therefore, LUS has the potential to become a reference instrument for bedside dynamic respiratory monitoring. We hope that this review will help clinicians(More)
