"The introduction to Lung Ultrasound in the Critically Ill: The BLUE Protocol highlights the development of lung US for the critically ill and the hurdles encountered. ... this book serves as an excellent reference for the topic of lung US from a comprehensive approach that has not previously been available. The author provides thorough background and has structured the concepts so as to appeal to any acute care specialty." (Davinder Ramsingh, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 125 (4), October, 2017)

"The book reflects the colossal experience of a dedicated physician evaluating the lungs with simple ultrasound technology. It is rich in practical points, clinical pearls, anecdotes, and historical and philosophical citations. ... Dr. Lichtenstein is one of the pioneers of bedside ultrasound. Hence, the book is also the history of three decades of personal struggle to advance bedside ultrasound to where it is today. ... a unique book which we believe will become an instant classic." (André Denault, Martin Girard and Yiorgos Alexandros Cavayas, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, February, 2016)
