Study: Lung ultrasound can foretell outcomes in COVID-19


A lung ultrasound-based scoring system was able to predict mortality risk, as well as intensive care unit admission, extent of parenchymal involvement and endotracheal intubation, among COVID-19 patients who were admitted to the emergency department, according to a study in Annals of Intensive Care. "Proper assessment of the severity and extent of pulmonary involvement is of paramount importance to select patients who will be admitted to hospital wards or ICUs and thus ensure adequate management of overwhelmed healthcare resources," study authors wrote.
