Ultrasound May Help Identify and Manage COVID-19

Ultrasound May Help Identify and Manage COVID-19

SonoSim is providing the following resources to medical professionals who are assessing patients for COVID-19.

Ultrasound Findings Early in the Course of COVID-19 Infection

Ultrasound Findings Early in the Course of COVID-19 Infection

Bedside ultrasound may prove to be a sensitive early indicator of lung involvement in patients with coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) infection. This greyscale ultrasound clip was taken from a COVID-19 positive patient on Day 1 of becoming symptomatic with fevers and myalgias.

Cardiac Complications of COVID-19

Evidence is rapidly emerging that COVID-19 patients may present with a myriad of cardiac complications, including acute myocardial injury, myocarditis, and dysrhythmias (Arentz et al., Clerkin et al., Huang et al.).

Cardiac Complications of COVID-19

Gastrointestinal Manifestations of COVID-19

Documented gastrointestinal manifestations in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients include anorexia, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

Rule-Out COVID-19 Patients: Case Studies

These case studies demonstrate how to integrate ultrasound findings into clinical decision making.

Using SonoSim to Learn About COVID-19 Ultrasound Findings

Preliminary studies have identified ultrasound findings associated with COVID-19 (Huang et al., Peng et al.). These ultrasound findings are discussed in the following SonoSim Training Modules.
