Call for CASE Papers

The CASE Editorial Team is excited to announce an upcoming special issue, which will focus on cardiovascular (CV) point of care ultrasound (POCUS). Please consider submitting either a single case report or a case series (three or more cases) to CASE, to illustrate the proven value of POCUS (e.g., straight-forward cases that directly impacted patient care and/or clinical outcomes). Examples of POCUS limitations or misadventures with an educational emphasis will also be considered. For this special CASE Issue, we consider CV POCUS as any ultrasound (hand-held or full-system) performed at the bedside with immediate interpretation to assist in the care of a patient with known or suspected cardiovascular disease or hemodynamic compromise. Moving images must be archived/recorded and available for submission with your case report. Emergency rooms, trauma bays, intensive care units, hospital beds, and even ambulatory clinical spaces employ POCUS and will be considered. Echocardiography, vascular imaging, lung, and abdominal ultrasound that impact CV physiology are encouraged.

CASE is a fantastic resource for education, and with this issue, the editorial team aims to further the field to elevate patient care and user knowledge (including non-expert users). As always, include your “eye-shattering” high quality images. Please read the CASE Author Information for general formatting and structure guidelines. If you have questions before submitting, please click here to email the CASE Editorial staff. The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2022; all papers must be submitted through the CASE Editorial Manager portal. Indicate in the cover letter that the submission is intended for the POCUS Special Issue.
