Bedside Ultrasound Clip Quiz: An Uncommon Finding! #FOAMed, #FOAMcc

 

A 60 year old woman, known for COPD, shows up short of breath and hypotensive.

The clip goes thru a series of views of the IVC and the heart.

What do you see?

 

Answer and further case data coming soon!

 

cheers

  1. I could be wrong.. but the IVC is blown with poor variability. RV is dilated and there seems to be an echogenic mass abiding the RV wall. Could it be thrombus? In the setting of hypotension, a massive PE would be high on my list
