Abstract
There have been a number of recent advancements in the field of point-of-care ultrasound, including lung ultrasound for adult and pediatric populations. Evidence-based guidelines on the use of point-of-care lung ultrasound have been published. Lung ultrasound is superior to chest radiography in diagnosing several disorders of vital importance in the perioperative period. This review presents a discussion of techniques and clinical applications of lung ultrasound in pediatric patients focusing on usage in the perioperative period.
