GOLDEN RULES OF E.D. ULTRASOUND
- Have a low threshold to use bedside ultrasound to check for life-threatening, time-sensitive conditions: Examples include, massive PE, cardiac tamponade, ruptured ectopic or a AAA..
- Use ultrasound and echo liberally in code situations: Use of ultrasound in code blue situations can be useful in assessing for cardiac motion, cardiac tamponade, massive pulmonary embolism, hemoperitoneum, etc.
- Use ultrasound in urosepsis: Bedside ultrasound can diagnose unsuspected urologic obstruction in patients who present with urosepsis, yet have no risk factors for UTI.
- Don’t go out on a limb: Verify abnormal findings with formal imaging, either by CT, formal ultrasound or other modalities.
