Point-of-Care Ultrasound: A Useful Diagnostic Tool in Africa.
This article aims at describing the use of point-of-care ultrasound in diagnosing the most important conditions in Africa, in addition to clinical work-up. Different protocols exist for the diagnosis of trauma-related disorders, tuberculosis, schistosomiasis, thromboembolism, causes of dyspnea, and non- traumatic shock. Point-of-care ultrasound might be a beneficial tool in Africa, aiding diagnostics and management of patients with these conditions. However, studies must be done to assess the impact of point-of-care ultrasound on mortality. PMID: 32517593 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Praxis)

Abstract CME Sonography 91: Differential Diagnosis of Lower Abdominal Pain Abstract. Pain in the lower abdomen is a frequent reason for further imaging clarification by sonography. The most frequent causes are appendicitis and diverticulitis, in addition to ureteral stones, ovarian and tubal pathology as well as various hernias. Appendicitis has a characteristic clinical presentation and can be diagnosed by CT or ultrasound. In children, the differential diagnosis is that of mesenteric lymphadenitis. Diverticulitis, often right-sided, can also be reliably diagnosed with CT or ultrasound. Not to be forgotten is the...

[Peer Teaching in Ultrasound Education - A Narrative Review].
Abstract Peer Teaching in Ultrasound Education - A Narrative Review Abstract. Learning about ultrasound is becoming an increasingly important component of the undergraduate medical curriculum. However, teaching about this is very time-consuming, which is why many universities use peer teaching in ultrasound training. Peer teaching has various advantages that go beyond reducing specialists' teaching time: students may learn more from their peers because their cognitive schemata are more congruent and they are more likely to be open about their learning deficits. In addition, the process of teaching leads to increas...

Comparing Blended Learning with Faculty-Led Ultrasound Training: Protocol for a Randomised Controlled Trial (The SIGNATURE Trial).
This study investigates whether this new teaching format is as good as, or superior to, the faculty-led method. Methods: The SIGNATURE study is an investigator-initiated, two-arm, randomised controlled trial, enrolling 152 medical students at the Universities of Bern, Fribourg and Zurich. Stratified by study site, students are 1:1 randomised to either the blended-learning course or the faculty-led 2.5-day ultrasound course. Students undergo a six-station objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) and complete an online questionnaire immediately after the course and 6 months later.

Abstract CME: Legionella pneumonia Abstract. Legionnaire's disease is a usually severe form of pneumonia caused by Legionella pneumophila, a Gram-negative bacterium with an airborne transmission. The infection is acquired in the community, but cases of hospital acquisition from hot water systems have been described. The most common clinical features are cough, fever, gastrointestinal symptoms, hyponatremia and altered liver function tests. The mainstay investigations to confirm diagnosis are urine antigen, sputum polymerase chain reaction, sputum or bronchial alveolar lavage cultures. Standard antibiotic treatment...

Abstract Lung Ultrasound in Differential Diagnosis of Dyspnea Abstract. Lung ultrasound offers an immediate diagnosis in accordance with the clinical examination in many causes of dyspnea: pleural effusion, pulmonary edema, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism and interstitial lung diseases. At first level exam, CXR, despite its intrinsic limitations and low accuracy, may still play a relevant role. CT scan remains the gold standard, but it requires patient transportation and use of radiation, which precludes an extensive use especially within the same patient. Lung ultrasound, after proper training of the physician, is ...

The examiner's knowledge of possible artifacts is helpful in evaluating the ultrasound images. Artifacts are not only present in B-mode sonography, but also in color Doppler sonography. Terms such as blooming, aliasing and twinkling refer to classic artifacts in color Doppler sonography. The causes of these artifacts and the po...

Body dysmorphic disorder (point prevalence: 1.7-2.4 %) is characterized by excessive preoccupation with one or more subjectively perceived blemishes of the appearance, as a result of which those affected show a high burden of disease due to avoidance behavior and time-consuming rituals, and often secondary problems (including depression, suicidal tendencies). The disorder is often accompanied by pronounced shame and is therefore associated with challenges in diagnostics, which is why the indication and spec...

Patients suffer from a secondary Cushing syndrome with hypokalemia, hypertension, hyperglycemia and edema. There are three therapeutic approaches: treatment of the underlying disease, hormonal inhibition and symptomatic treatment. The prognosis of an ACTH-producing lung cancer is poor due to numerous complications. In the presented case study, the patient refused treatment of t...

For an optimal management of COVID-19 (Coronary Virus Disease) we depend on a fast and reliable diagnosis and severity assessment. The gold standard so far is RT-PCR (reverse transcriptase polmerase chain reaction) from the nasopharyngeal smear. Current tests have a sensitivity of 60-90 %. As a consequence, we must expect 10-40 % false negative results. In addition to oxygen saturation for severity classification, stethoscope, chest X-ray and lung computer tomography are routinely used. However, the standard metho...
