This introductory video details how bedside medical ultrasound imaging of an arthritic hand allows for rapid and effective evaluation of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It discusses the anatomy of the finger, probe placement, and scanning techniques. It also includes clinical images of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joints. This video is of particular interest to rheumatologists and primary care clinicians.
Discussion on helpful scanning techniques and anatomy landmarks used to perform an ultrasound guided cannulation. Topics: patient and transducer position, identification of structures near the vein, vein depth, & insertion technique.
Using the apical view and a phased array probe during bedside cardiac ultrasound
examinations can enable clinicians to evaluate cardiac health, structures, & ventricular contractility. This view is ideal for identifying cardiomyopathy, pericardial effusion, and cardiac tamponade.
This video details the use of bedside ultrasound imaging, specifically the parasternal short-axis view, with a phased array probe to evaluate cardiac health and anatomy, especially when looking at a patient's left ventricular contractility.
This video (part 1 of 2) details how the use of bedside ultrasound for placing central venous catheters can reduce the number of puncture attempts, increase patient safety, and increase procedural efficiency.
This video (part 2 of 2) details how to use bedside ultrasound imaging to map the anatomy and orientation of the internal jugular vein, as well as determine puncture point, needle depth, and needle trajectory during central venous cannulation.
