Confirmatory testing follows ER use of ultrasound
from HealthDay News via Medical Xpress
Emergency room physicians report that their use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is usually followed by confirmatory testing, according to a study published online May 8 in the Journal of Clinical Ultrasound. The researchers found that the most common emergency medicine performed POCUS (EM-POCUS) procedures used without confirmatory testing were as follows: determination of cardiac activity during cardiac arrest, differentiating cellulitis from abscess, central venous catheter placement confirmation, pericardial effusion evaluation, and focused assessment with sonography for trauma.
