Title
Serial gastric ultrasound to evaluate gastric emptying after prokinetic therapy with domperidone and erythromycin in a surgical patient with a full stomach : a case report
Author
Abstract
Fasting guidelines are used to prevent perioperative aspiration but they are only reliable in healthy elective patients. Point-of-care gastric ultrasound allows qualitative and quantitative evaluation of gastric contents at the bedside. This case report describes the use of serial gastric point-of-care ultrasound to evaluate the effect of prokinetic therapy with domperidone and erythromycin in an elective surgical patient with multiple comorbidities who presented with a full stomach.
