Neonatal Lung US

Presentation prepared by Dr Punnanee Wutthigate during her Neonatal Hemodynamics Clinical Research Fellowship at McGill University.

Patient with a pneumothorax

Lung ultrasound demonstrating a pneumothorax on the left side

Lung ultrasound demonstrating a pneumothorax on the left side

M-Mode applied on the LUS with pneumothorax on the left side demonstrating a barcode (stratosphere) sign

Lung ultrasound demonstrating severe B-lines (coalescent B-lines) without consolidation - Score 2.

M-Mode applied on the LUS on the contralateral (right) lung demonstrating absence of a pneumothorax. We can see the motion artefacts from the high frequency oscillation on the M-Mode. This image corresponds to the "sand on the beach" sign (absence of a pneumothorax)

Scoring system from: "Brat, R., Yousef, N., Klifa, R., Reynaud, S., Aguilera, S. S., & De Luca, D. (2015). Lung ultrasonography score to evaluate oxygenation and surfactant need in neonates treated with continuous positive airway pressure. JAMA pediatrics, 169(8), e151797-e151797."
