  1. I appreciate LITFL and this very presentation very much. I believe, however, it understresses the role that POCUS can provide in these patients. Especially, since pediatric patients are the ones that benefit most from radiation sparing. Browsing through, it can easily be said that cases in slides 13, 16, 22, 26 would have benefited from US scanning before the use of X-rays. I’m not aware if there are any studies specifically devoted to the US of E-VALI, but I reckon what we already know about ALI/ARDS could be inferred as valid. Thus, also the last 3 cases could have benefited from lung ultrasound
