Ultrasound has revolutionized a physician's ability to make urgent and emergent diagnoses at the bedside and has changed the management of many acute injuries and conditions. Manual of Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound is a practical, concise introduction to what is rapidly becoming an essential tool for all critical care physicians: bedside emergency ultrasound. It covers the full spectrum of conditions that can be diagnosed using ultrasound and gives practical guidance in how to use ultrasound for common invasive procedures. Major applications are introduced using focused diagnostic questions and the image-acquisition skills needed to answer them. Images of positive and negative findings are presented, as are scanning tips for improving image quality. The second edition has been substantially revised and expanded, with new images, updated literature reviews, new applications, and clinical algorithms. New chapters cover additional procedures, musculoskeletal and pediatric applications, and the use of ultrasound in resuscitation. This text is invaluable for emergency physicians at all levels
