  • Comprehensively explains how ultrasound can become the stethoscope of modern medicine.
  • The premise for the Basic Lung Ultrasound Examination (BLUE) protocol is that clinical examination with a stethoscope and plain CXR have fairly low sensitivities for picking up pathology.
  • Lung ultrasound, in contrast, has been shown to have both a high sensitivity and specificity when used to diagnose common chest pathologies.

The primary purpose is to provide an image-based, regional anesthesia book for pediatric anesthesiologists. The book targets all practicing pediatric anesthesiologists who wish to practice or improve their regional anesthesia skill. It also will help anyone, whether a nurse or a physician running an acute pain service in a pediatric hospital. I have no hesitation recommending this book to anyone who wants to learn how to improve the art of regional anesthesia.

The book reflects the colossal experience of a dedicated physician evaluating the lungs with simple ultrasound technology. It is rich in practical points, clinical pearls, anecdotes, and historical and philosophical citations. Dr. Lichtenstein is one of the pioneers of bedside ultrasound. Hence, the book is also the history of three decades of personal struggle to advance bedside ultrasound to where it is today. A unique book which we believe will become an instant classic.
