POCUS in Critical Care

The expanding use and availability of Point-of-Care ultrasound has physicians embracing it’s use when evaluating critically ill patients. Having ultrasound readily available to view anatomical and hemodynamic information, directly impacts the way physicians are able to manage patients in the critical care environment, while also improving patient comfort and safety. POCUS provides diagnostic and procedural capabilities plus the opportunity for frequent monitoring of patient conditions. The availability of smaller, less expensive equipment means that ultrasound has never been more accessible to the critical care physician. The additional value that AI adds to the mix, expanding the potential of ultrasound to provide support for more complex exams and reports, immediately at the point of care, reducing the need for in-house referrals and wait time.
