Veterinary POCUS: Understanding and Diagnosing Lung Consolidation, It’s Easier Than You Think!
1-Hour On-Demand CE/CPD Credit
Join Drs. Søren Boysen and Serge Chalhoub as they show you how simple point-of-care ultrasound is for understanding and diagnosing lung consolidation. It’s truly easier than you think!
In this 1-hour dynamic webinar, participants will learn proven wireless lung ultrasound exam techniques to interpret lung consolidation. Drs. Boysen and Chalhoub will:
- Describe the difference between B-lines and lung consolidation
- Demonstrate how to scan the lung surface of small animals to search for lung pathology
- Explain how to classify types of lung consolidation and possible underlying etiologies
- Describe why and when lung consolidation is sonographically detectable during pleura and lung ultrasound (PLUS) examination
- Describe how to classify the common types of lung consolidation based on ultrasound criteria
- List common differential diagnoses to consider when consolidation is identified during PLUS
- Using case examples, demonstrate how to use wireless ultrasound for the rapid PLUS exam
They’re back! Award winning lecturers and leading experts in the field of veterinary point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS), Drs. Søren Boysen and Serge Chalhoub return for another highly engaging and dynamic lecture, this time focusing on something often overlooked in veterinary medicine, lung consolidation!
When and why does ultrasound detect lung consolidation, and how is it different than B-lines? What are the 3 common types of lung consolidation and how are they distinguished from each other? Also, what the heck are “ultrasound lung worms”? Join Drs. Boysen and Chalhoub on December 12th for answers.
Pleura and lung ultrasound (PLUS) terminology can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be (even the internist and criticalist can agree on that). This banter filled lecture, delivered by internist Dr. Boysen and criticalist Dr. Chalhoub (who rarely agree on anything) will describe the different types of lung consolidation commonly encountered in small animal patients, what differential diagnosis should be considered when consolidation is identified, and how the clinician’s knowledge of radiograph interpretation is applicable to understanding lung ultrasound. If you can interpret the lungs on a radiograph, you already know how to interpret the lungs on ultrasound!
With a combined total of more than 25 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on the subject of veterinary lung ultrasound, Drs. Boysen and Chalhoub are big proponents of using veterinary POCUS for quickly assessing small animals. They will be joined by your host Dr. Oron Frenkel and sonographer Shelley Guenther who will be presenting live canine scanning, so that you can see the new Clarius HD3 Vet scanner in action and hone your ultrasound skills. Don’t miss this webinar – watch today!
