Procedural Ultrasound

Other Procedures

Other Procedures


So most commonly we are going to use ultrasound to guide procedures where we are putting a needle into a fluid filled space such as a vessel, or a joint effusion, or something like that, but we can also it for other procedures. This is an example of an intubation. We are looking at the neck using a linear probe seeing the thyroid tissue and the trachea and in this case you can see the endotracheal tube going in lateral to the trachea in the esophagus. This is a not well-placed esophageal intubation you can see by ultrasound that we then removed the tube.
