POCUS Rounds

Great multi-disciplinary rounds last Tuesday with Critical Care, Emerg, and Cardiology represented!

Bottom lines:

  • Look at pleural line to differentiate between cardiogenic vs non cardiogenic B-lines
  • Pericardial effusion can appear larger in subxiphoid view
  • Need multiple views to determine size of pericardial effusion and sonographic signs of tamponade
  • Cardiac tamponade is a clinical diagnosis
  • Beware sludge filled gallbladder that can appear like liver and be missed

We'll be taking a summer break so next POCUS rounds will be:
Tuesday September 9, 2014

Save the Date!
