Writtenby a pioneer in critical care ultrasound, this book discusses the basictechnique and signatures of lung ultrasound and explains its main clinicalapplications. The tools and clinical uses of the BLUE prool,which allows diagnosis of most cases of acute respiratory failure, are firstdescribed in detail. Careful attention is then devoted to proolsderived from the BLUE prool the FALLSprool for diagnosis and management of acutecirculatory failure, the Pink prool for use in ARDS, and the SESAME prool foruse in cardiac arrest and to the LUCI-FLR program,a means of answering clinical questions while reducing radiation exposure. Finally,the book discusses all the possible settings in which lung ultrasound can beused, discipline by discipline and condition by condition. Lung Ultrasound inthe Critically Ill comprehensively explains how ultrasound can become thestethoscope of modern medicine. It is a superb complement to the authorsprevious book, Whole Body Ultrasonography in theCritically Ill.
