Differentiating cardiogenic from non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema in critically ill patients is notoriously difficult. Lung ultrasound is an excellent tool to diagnose pulmonary edema, but can it also differentiate between those two clinical entities? Using both basic and some more advanced ultrasound signs, lung ultrasound has the potential to become the gold standard for diagnosing the cause of pulmonary edema in critically ill patients.
