BLUE protocol - urgent lung sonography in acute respiratory failure.
Ultrasound examination (ultrasound) is widely used in clinical practice for the diagnosis of many organs and systems. Clinical research data show high diagnostic efficiency in assessing pathological conditions in the lungs.
This technique has no contraindications.
Clients of UNIVERSUM.CLINIC can undergo an ultrasound examination of the lungs directly at the clinic, or order this service at your location (at home/office examination).
The BLUE protocol, according to which ultrasound of the lungs is performed, has been used in the United States and many other countries in hospitals since 2000, as a quick diagnostic method (less than 3 minutes) to determine, first of all, respiratory failure.
