Background: Focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) is a simplified, clinician-performed application of echocardiography that is rapidly expanding in use, especially in emergency and critical care medicine.
Ultrasound is better than conventional X-ray to diagnose pneumothorax and can in addition be used to monitor progress or regress in the size of ptx. According to a new study made by PhD Nils Petter Oveland Norwegian Air Ambulance.
The easiest, most effective and accurate technique to perform real-time ultrasound guided vascular accessis called the Dynamic Needle Tip Positioning (DNTP). The basic idea is that it is only possible to know the exact position of the needle tip when it is visible in an image plane but not in the adjacent plane.
