France AGA. Tutorial 9 - Lung ultrasound | ICU Sonography. Lung Ultrasound Traditionally, air has been considered the enemy of ultrasound and the lung has been considered an organ not amenable to ultrasonographic examination. Visualizing the lung is essential to treating patients who are critically ill. The commonest investigation used to image the lung in the ICU is the bedside chest X-ray. While the bedside roentgenogram is relatively inexpensive and is available even in most secondary hospital ICUs, it has a few limitations. It is difficult to ensure breath holding during the X-ray exposure and this leads to a reduction in the spatial resolution.

The cassette is placed posteriorly and the X-ray beam originates anterior, at a shorter distance than recommended and quite often not tangentially to the diaphragmatic cupola, thereby hampering the correct interpretation of the silhouette sign. Technique of lung ultrasound A range of frequencies (4 to 12MHz) can be used to visualize the lungs. Video 1. The classification is as follows: Pneumothorax a.

Untitled Document. Sonde : haute fréquence de préférence (>5 MHz), de petite taille pour passer entre deux côtes. L'air et l'os ne laissant pas passer les US, ce sont les artefacts dus à ces structures qui constituent la sémiologie pulmonaire en échographie. L'examen doit être systématique et complet, la sonde d'ETT se plaçant aux mêmes endroits qu'un stéthoscope pour un examen clinique. L'incidence doit être perpendiculaire à la peau, dans l'axe longitudinal de manière à toujours avoir les deux côtes en guise de repère fixe.

La sémiologie repose essentiellement sur des signes dynamiques en mode bidimensionnel. Sémiologie échographique : • Ligne pleurale : ligne hyperéchogène, située entre 0,5 et 1 cm sous la sonde, sous les côtes. . • Lignes A : répétition de la ligne pleurale à distances égales correspondant à l'épaisseur de l'interface pariéto-pulmonaire. • Lignes Z : queues de comète mais larges et mal délimitées, non issues de lalligne pleurale, ne traversant pas toute la fenêtre.
