This patient presented to the HUM Emergency Department after a motorcycle accident. Among his injuries was a partially avulsed fingernail. A digital block was performed and the nail was removed to reveal a nailbed laceration. The laceration was repaired and the nail sutured in place to serve as a splint and dressing for the underlying nailbed.
These ultrasounds, performed by EM residents at HUM, nicely demonstrate the classic sonographic finding consistent with intussusception: the target sign, or layers of invaginated bowel seen in cross section.
Watch Dr. Duneant, R2 EM resident at HUM, set up BIPAP for a patient.
