Mirrored Ribs: A Sign for Pneumothorax in Neonates*
Conclusions: The occurrence of “mirrored ribs” in lung ultrasound in combination with absence of lung sliding, absence of B-lines and lung point might facilitate the rapid recognition of pneumothorax in neonates.
We describe unusual presentation of hemothorax following CVC placement in a patient undergoing vestibular schwannoma excision. The patients' trachea intubated after several attempts during which thiopentone up to 600 mg administered. Thereafter, under ultrasound guidance, an 18G introducer needle placed in the right internal jugular vein but guide-wire did not advance. Meanwhile, the patient became hemodynamically unstable and a CVC placed in right subclavian vein and norepinephrine infused at 0.05 μg/kg/min; simultaneously, 1000 ml normal saline administered through CVC. The hemodynamic instability attributed to thiope...
