Abstract

Point-of-care ultrasound is being used more frequently in pediatric emergency medicine departments. It has become an important adjunct for clinical diagnoses and procedural guidance. We present a case series of 3 patients who presented to a pediatric emergency department and on chest radiographs had whiteout lung. Point-of-care ultrasound was able to differentiate fluid from consolidation, facilitating the appropriate investigations and interventions for these children.
