Transvaginal ultrasound examination has the potential to transmit vaginal infections, including human papillomavirus. Areas of particular concern are the use of probe covers with high rates of leakage, disinfectants that are not effective against human papillomavirus, and coupling gel from multiple-use containers. We reviewed these issues, and we recommend 4 steps to reduce the risk of transmitting

Department of Emergency Medicine, North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, NY. PMID: 32653332 DOI: Item in Clipboard Full-text links Cite Abstract Study objective: We evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of point-of-care ultrasonography, performed by ultrasonographic fellowship-trained emergency physicians and physician assistants, compared with computed tomography (CT) scan in diagnosing acute diverticulitis in the emergency department (ED). Methods: This was a prospective observational study (...) , there were 13 false-positive (3%) and 10 false-negative (2%) point-of-care ultrasonographic examinations. Overall, compared with CT, point-of-care ultrasonography had a sensitivity of 92% (95% confidence interval 88% to 96%), specificity of 97% (95% confidence interval 94% to 99%), positive predictive value of 94% (95% confidence interval 90% to 97%), and negative predictive value of 96% (93% to 98%) in the diagnosis of diverticulitis.

19. Ultrasound-Assisted Versus Landmark-Guided Spinal Anesthesia in Patients With Abnormal Spinal Anatomy: A Randomized Controlled Trial

of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea. PMID: 31880632 DOI: Item in Clipboard Full-text links Cite Abstract Background: Spinal anesthesia using a surface landmark-guided technique can be challenging in patients with anatomical alterations of the lumbar spine; however, it is unclear whether using ultrasonography can decrease the technical difficulties in these populations. We assessed whether an ultrasound-assisted technique could reduce the number of needle passes required for block success compared (...) with the landmark group (ultrasound 3.5 [1-5 {0-7}]; landmark 5.5 [3-8 {0-9}]; P = .012). The incidences of complications during the procedure showed no significant differences between the 2 groups. Conclusions: For anesthesiologists with experience in neuraxial ultrasonography, the use of ultrasound significantly reduces the technical difficulties of spinal anesthesia in patients with abnormal spinal anatomy compared with the landmark-guided technique. Our results can lead to practical suggestions
