Focused cardiac ultrasound in resuscitation Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Focused cardiac ultrasound is recognized as a vital tool in critical care medicine. Few studies, however, have examined the utility of this modality in resuscitation. While integration of ultrasound can supplement resuscitation by potentially establishing the etiology of cardiac arrest, it must be done safely to avoid interruption of compressions. The aim of this study was to examine the integration of focused cardiac ultrasound into resuscitations in our hospital.
