It focuses on the applications of POCUS in a wide range of medical specialties especially critical care medicine, cardiology, emergency and respiratory medicine. Topics covered include the application of POCUS in diagnostics, monitoring of various cardiorespiratory conditions such as pulmonary edema, and the role it can perform in guiding interventions for pleural and pericardial effusion. Stunning illustrations and instructive accompanying video clips ensure that the reader can develop a deep understanding of how to properly apply the technology into day-to-day clinical practice.

Cardiopulmonary Point of Care Ultrasound is edited and authored by a group of world-renowned experts in the field of critical care echocardiography and POCUS from critical care medicine, cardiology, respiratory medicine, emergency medicine, surgery, radiology and cardiac physiology with a powerful multi-specialty and multi-disciplinary collaboration. It offers detailed insight into the applications of this technique and associated technologies across medical specialties with a focus on cardiorespiratory disorders. The user-focused emphasis in this resource makes it an ideal bedside manual for both experienced practitioners and trainees in these fields.
