About the Authors
  • This is a practical and concise introduction to bedside emergency ultrasound. It covers the full spectrum of conditions diagnosed via this modality, both for guiding invasive procedures and for diagnosis in critical-care settings. It introduces the major applications for emergency ultrasound by using focused diagnostic questions and teaching the image acquisition skills needed to answer these questions. Images of positive and negative findings for each application (FAST, ECHO, etc.) are presented, as well as scanning tips for improved image quality. Each section contains a review of the literature supporting each application.

    • Literature review for each application
    • Scanning tips for each application
    • Sample protocols for decision making

    Reviews & endorsements

    "As more departments now have access to ultrasound, it is important for physicians to be comfortable with the use of ultrasound in the emergency department (ED) and other critical care settings. Manual of Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound is a practical and concise introduction to bedside ultrasound. It is small enough to fit in your pocket but contains adequate information to make it useful in the ED."
    --Annals of Emergency Medicine

    "A concise, clearly-written text....What distinguishes this text is the inclusion of chapters on newer applications such as chest sonography for the presence of lung water, ocular scanning for retinal/lens detachment and intracranial pressure assessment, and bone ultrasound for fracture and dislocation....A timely and eminently readable for the trainee and practitioner of emergency and critical care medicine."
    --Critical Care Medicine
