There is one clinical trial.
Currently there is a great need for an accurately and rapid assessment of patients suspected for Covid-19. Like CT, Lung Ultrasound (LUS) examination can potentially help with the initial triage of patients but also help track the evolution of the disease. LUS can be used in every setting, including settings with limited infrastructure, allowing the reduction of disparities in trials participation. LUS is also a practical approach that can be used by obstetricians/gynecologists, who are the primary care givers in the labour and delivery room. The International Lung UltraSound Analysis (ILUSA) Study is an international multicenter prospective explorative observational study to assess the predictive value of LUS in Covid-19 suspected and diagnosed pregnant patients.
Description: The primary endpoint is diagnostic performance in terms of the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC, also known as the c-statistic) and sensitivity and specificity with regard to the prediction of poor outcome. Outcome at one week from admission: good outcome includes discharge or inpatient breathing in free air; poor outcome includes patient with oxygen support, patients with CPAP/ high oxygen flow cannula, or patient with endotracheal intubation during the week.Measure: Diagnostic performance of LUS to predict poor outcome Time: outcome one week after enrollment into the study
