Research Projects at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham:
Ultrasound in Pulmonary Edema – The LUPE Study:
The objective of the study is to evaluate if the bedside lung
ultrasound in the emergency department can effectively aid the diagnosis of
pulmonary edema in patients presenting with acute dyspnea.
Distal Radius Ultrasound guided Fracture Identification (DRUFI)
The objective of our study is to evaluate the
reliability of ultrasound in the diagnosis and post reduction alignment
assessment in distal radial fractures.
accurate is the EP in diagnosing DVT using bedside US?
The aim of this study is to compare emergency
physician-performed ultrasound (EPPU) of the lower extremities with duplex US
done in the DVT clinic by the radiologists for the patients undergoing work up
Diagnose & Describe Distal Radial Fractures with
study compares the diagnostic utility of bedside ultrasound done by emergency
physicians (EP) vs radiography for diagnosing and defining radial fractures in
Fascia iliaca block, for fractured femur, in Emergency
To determine the effect of fascia iliaca
block, on pain relief, in patients with fractured femur (neck, shaft).
Ultrasound in Renal Colic. To compare bedside ultrasound in ED with CT in detecting renal calculi in adult patients presenting to ED with acute flank pain.
A novel way of assessing lung expansion in
Pneumothorax (Case Study)
want to present a case where we monitored the lung expansion, in patient with
pneumothorax, with the help of bedside ultrasound.
