American Society for Echocardiogram Statement

A recent post on the expanding utility of POCUS in the hospital.  Nice to have support from cardiology colleagues (in this case the president of their ECHO society), as often we experience push back.

“There is no denying that if I were to suffer a sudden hemodynamic collapse and would wind up in an emergency department, I would want it to be one in which the emergency physicians were fully trained in POCUS (point of care ultrasound) and knew how to apply it to patient care.”
