Case of the Week: August 26, 2019

By | 2019-08-29T02:45:17+00:00 August 29th, 2019|Case of the Week, Cases|

This is 54 yo M who presented for an elective surgery. On POD # 0 he became tachycardic with subjective dyspnea and hypotension progressing into a PEA arrest. ROSC was quickly obtained with typical ACLS and he was placed on life support and transferred to the ICU for further management. A CTPA was negative, and his EKG was unremarkable with no evidence of coronary ischemia. On POD # 1 he remained hemodynamically unstable, and given very poor transthoracic windows, the decision was made to perform a TEE. Have a look at the images and Doppler information below. Is there a finding that may explain the etiology of his arrest? What would your recommendation be to the treating team?

Based on this image, does the patient has a pneumothorax? What is the 2D ultrasound image correlate of the vertical areas as shown by the arrows?
