Critical care Ultrasonography
Ability to perform serial bedside limited ultrasound examinations is very important to diagnose critically ill patients and answer specific imperative lifesaving questions. Critical care ultrasonography (CCUS) is an extension of traditional physical examination by allowing the intensivist to visualize the anatomy and function of various organ systems in real time.
With the help of CCUS, clinicians can perform repeated
focussed examinations, without the need to transfer to radiology suite and
without additional exposure to radiation. General CCUS incorporates competency
in pleural, lung, abdominal and vascular ultrasonography.
CCUS can function as
a valuable adjunct to physical examination for evaluation of critically ill
patients, which can be one of the most challenging issues in daily practice. It
can be an asset in resource-limited settings where the diagnostic imaging
modalities are often constrained and frequently limited to plain film
