[POCUS - Thoracic Sonography in Times of Corona: What Sonographing Family Physicians Should Examine].

Praxis (Bern 1994) 2021 Jun;110(8):439-448

Rankweil, Österreich.

POCUS - Thoracic Sonography in Times of Corona: What Sonographing Family Physicians Should Examine When performing chest sonography of patients with symptoms such as respiratory infection, dyspnea and chest pain, the primary goal is to find or exclude significant diagnoses such as pneumothorax, pleural effusion, pulmonary edema, tumors, pulmonary emboli, etc. as the cause of the symptoms. If infection with SARS-CoV-2 is present, COVID-19 pneumonia can be confirmed or excluded as the cause of the symptoms with a high degree of probability based on the sonographic signs. Read More
