Point-of-Care Echocardiography

In non-emergency medicine literature, cardiac Point-of-Care Ultrasound is termed “focused cardiac ultrasound” or “FoCUS,” and has been the subject of national cardiology and intensive care guidelines. It is used by emergency medicine, trauma, internal medicine, cardiology, and intensive care teams to facilitate early diagnosis, guide management, and safe disposition for patients.

Here, we present a robust, peer-reviewed approach to Point-of-Care echocardiography for the front-line clinician.
