Use of Ultrasound in ICU

Intensivists who manage critically sick patients frequently employ point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS), which allows them to correctly and quickly check for a variety of diseases, including pneumothorax, pulmonary edema, hydronephrosis, hemoperitoneum, and deep vein thrombosis, among others. Transesophageal echocardiogram is commonly used in basic and advanced critical care echocardiography to identify the cause of hemodynamic instability in undifferentiated shock and to direct treatment. Studies have shown that respiratory fluctuation of the IVC is unreliable, and the most promising POCUS technique for assessing volume status is monitoring of aortic blood flow velocity following passive leg raising procedures.
