Med Center ID (abcd1)
Which of the following injuries CANNOT be effectively ruled out by the EFAST exam?
Which is the following is FALSE regarding the RUQ FAST view?
Common pitfalls include mistaking the IVC and gallbladder for free fluid
The liver is an excellent acoustic window
You need less free fluid in Morison's pouch in the supine patient (as opposed in tredelenberg position) for it to be visualized on ultrasound
The RUQ view is in the coronal plane
Free fluid usually makes sharp angles on ultrasound
Which of the following is FALSE regarding the LUQ FAST view?
The spleen does not adhere to the diaphragm so free fluid is more likely to collect between the two than on the right side of the abdomen
The stomach can be mistaken for free fluid when scanning the LUQ
When performing FAST view on the LUQ, the probe must be aimed more posterior to avoid the stomach
When performing the FAST view on the LUQ, the probe must be positioned more caudal due to the lower kidney position on the left side
Which of the following is FALSE regarding the pelvic FAST view?
To best visualize free fluid, one only needs to perform the transverse view of the pelvis
The peritoneum is cephalad to the bladder and separates the abdominal cavity from the pelvis
The most common place for fluid to collect in the female is the posterior cul-de-sac (pouch of douglas)
Due to posterior acoustic enhancement when the bladder is fluid fluid, the gain should be decreased to avoid missing free fluid
A large amount of free fluid in the pelvis can be mistaken for the bladder
Which of the following is FALSE regarding the cardiac FAST and pneumothorax view?
On the subxiphoid view, the anterior fat pad can be seen between the liver and heart
A true pericardial effusion/fluid should be present in more than one view of the heart
On the parasternal long view of the heart, free fluid is most likely to collect next to the right ventricle
If you see lung sliding and comet tails, there is not a pneumothorax present
A pericardial fluid collection should widen as it approaches the apex of the heart
