A simplified lung ultrasound approach to detect increased extravascular lung water in critically ill patients


BACKGROUND The quantification of B-lines at lung ultrasonography is a valid tool to estimate the extravascular lung water (EVLW) in patients after major cardiac surgery. However, there is still uncertainty about the correlation between B-lines and EVLW in a general population of critically ill. AIM To evaluate a simplified lung ultrasonographic assessment… (More)
