Due to the recent global outbreak of COVID-19, much attention
is paid to the effectiveness of the diagnosis of patients with COVID-19, as
well as to the treatment of patients with exacerbation of the lungs, which
leads to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
In an epidemic situation in the world with incidence
of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002, in which the virus
affected the respiratory system, and caused complications, caused atypical
pneumonia with severe acute respiratory failure, radiation diagnostics -
radiography and computed tomography - became an effective research tool. (CT).
In recent years, scientists and doctors have paid
great attention to the study and study of the effectiveness and informativeness
of the use of the ultrasound diagnostic method (ultrasound) for the incidence
of chest organs (pneumonia, pneumothorax, pulmonary edema, etc.).
According to the results of previous studies,
ultrasound of the lungs can be used to effectively identify patients with
COVID-19 pneumonia. So, the practical value of these studies is shown on real
examples of doctors from countries (Italy, Spain), where there is a large
infection of COVID-19 among the population. Although a chest CT scan is the
main tool for assessing lung damage, it is not always available in emergency
situations. Therefore, rapid diagnosis is crucial for hospitalized patients.
So, an alternative is ultrasound, with which you can diagnose, monitor and
monitor the treatment process in real time, without requiring patient movement
and the risk of transmission of the virus, which is especially important during
the COVID-19 pandemic.
Therefore, the use of a portable ultrasonic device
ALPINION E-CUBE i7 (or other E-CUBE series) will provide you with the following advantages:
- efficiency, mobility and efficiency;
- lack of radiation exposure compared to x-ray / CT
- the absence of restrictions on the premises, as
patients can be immediately scanned when leaving the medical task force, on
their beds or in clinics;
- the ability to quickly timely and multiple
diagnostics to monitor the treatment process;
- when diagnosing infected patients with a sensor that
is in contact with the patient’s body, it can be protected using a protective
- real-time image acquisition;
- high quality visualization, since the portable
system E-CUBE i7 was designed based on the architecture of the stationary
We offer a COVID-19 pneumonia ultrasound protocol to help you perform a quality study.
