Brief Summary:

COVID is a major health problem causing massive capacity problems at hospitals. Rapid and accurate diagnostic workflow is of paramount importance. Access to radiological diagnostics tools such as x-ray or computed tomography of the chest are limited even in high-resource settings.

Focused lung ultrasound, FLUS, is a point-of-care diagnostic tool that allows rapid and on-site assessment of lung abnormalities. No transportation of the patient is required thus lowering risk of spreading SAR-CoV- inside the hospital.

This study aims to explore the diagnostic value of FLUS in the COVID-19 pandemic and to explore if FLUS findings can predict risk of respiratory failure.
