The global pandemic of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) is an unprecedented event that is overloading health services worldwide. In M éxico, the situation is no less worrying. When we started working with lung ultrasound (LUS) in México 118 cases and 1 dead have been registered in the country; at the time of writing this manuscript 56,594 cases and 6,090 deaths have been confirmed. The increase of cases and the saturation of all medical services at all levels calls for swift action and close attention. It also calls for precise diagnoses, especially in patients in respiratory distress.

AbstractCOVID-19 is a viral disease due to the infection of the novel Corona virus SARS-CoV-2, that has rapidly spread in many countries until the World Health Organization declared the pandemic from March 11, 2020. Elderly patients and those affected by hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and chronic pulmonary and cardiovascular conditions are more susceptible to present more severe forms of COVID-19. These conditions are often represented in dialytic renal end-stage patients. Moreover, dialysis patients are more vulnerable to infection due to suppression of the immune system. Growing evidences, although still supported by f...

It’s been enough for a bit, isn’t it? For three months now, there has been little space in the world for any other kind of news. That is, news without the word ‘coronavirus’. But there was innovation, there is excitement and, well, even some weird (although useful!) inventions that appeared while the world has been in lockdown. So here’s an outlook on such news, all, promise, without that particular C-word. Hospitals have been facing great challenges recently. But they are on the verge of a new era that brings better care and more focus on the patient. This is a trend we have been talking a...

Currently the COVID-19 pandemic is putting significant strain on the healthcare systems across the globe. Our anaesthetic colleagues are under immense pressure and in some instances have been redeployed to other settings, limiting our ability to operate under general or regional anaesthesia. We propose that training in both wide awake local anaesthesia no tourniquet (WALANT) as well as ultrasound guided blocks should be incorporated into plastic surgery training or at the very least in to the hand surgery subspecialty curriculum to help overcome such a problem in the future.

AbstractNon-protocolized fluid administration in critically ill patients, especially those with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), is associated with poor outcomes. Therefore, fluid administration in patients with Coronavirus  disease (COVID-19) should be properly guided. Choice of an index to guide fluid management during a pandemic with mass patient admissions carries an additional challenge due to the relatively limited resources. An ideal test for assessment of fluid responsiveness during this pandemic should be acc urate in ARDS patients, economic, easy to interpret by junior staff, valid in patients in ...

Authors: Pacileo M, Giallauria F, Savarese C, Cirillo T, Crescibene F, Di Lorenzo A, Ferrillo M, Calabrese MG, Vigorito C, D'Andrea A Abstract SARS-CoV-2 infection, responsible for COVID-19, can determine cardiac events, which require a quick diagnosis and management, and should not be overlooked due to the presence of COVID-19 infection. In some cases, cardiovascular symptoms can also be the first and only manifestation of SARS-CoV-2 infection. In patients with COVID-19, the full cardiovascular disease diagnostic algorithm can be hindered by logistic restrain mainly derived from the difficulty of transporting pati...
