Benefits Of Cardiac Ultrasound At The Point Of Care

Cardiac Imaging at the Point of Care

Cardiac imaging at the point of care allows clinicians to assess patient condition and set a treatment plan. With an intuitive user interface, Sonosite point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) systems provide accurate hemodynamic profiling that enables physicians to assess cardiac function and effectively direct patient care for better outcomes.
Point-of-care ultrasound is used at the bedside, so there’s no need to transport a critically ill patient to another department.

Common Cardiac Exams for POCUS:

  • Goal-directed echo
    • Parasternal long axis
    • Parasternal short axis
    • Apical 4 chamber
  • IVC collapsibility/stroke volume to determine fluid responsiveness
  • RUSH exam (for shock and hypotension)
  • Trans-esophageal echocardiography for shock and cardiac arrest

Sonosite Ultrasound Systems Feature:

  • Intuitive user interface and workflow
  • Cardiac imaging measurements and calculations
  • Fluid-resistant surfaces for simplified cleaning and disinfection
  • Quick boot-up (under 25 seconds) from cold start to live scanning
