Not simply another "how-to" POCUS book, this is meant to take the novice or intermediate bedside sonographer-clinician on teaching rounds with a POCUS and resucitation veteran, providing the integration of imaging with clinical management. Aimed for physicians taking care of acutely ill patients and wanting to take their game to another level, not just in terms of POCUS skills, but more importantly in how to truly embrace the next phase in clinical assessment, one where all systems are co-examined with bedside imaging. Using a clinical syndrome-based approach, this will help readers reframe their clinical thinking from a new and especially physiological perspective. A must-read for anyone taking care of sick patients.
“The team at EMCrit specializes in taking difficult clinical ideas and logistically translating them to bedside use; this amazing book has taken the same path. Philippe Rola is a consummate and practical critical care clinician. He has crafted a book that radiates with this clinical acumen. It is stripped down to solely the clinically relevant essential knowledge to teach you how to use Point-of-Care Ultrasound at the bedside of the acutely or critically ill patient to answer vital questions. It is well worth mastering all of the techniques in this guide as each will add to your capabilities of caring for your patients on the wards, in the ED or in the ICU.” Scott D. Weingart
