Abstract

Given the well-established benefits of POCUS as well as the momentum behind learning and teaching these skills, now is the time for anesthesiologists to embrace POCUS to improve bedside patient care and management.

In this article, we will discuss the many relevant clinical applications of POCUS for the anesthesiologist. We will provide a brief review of Airway, Lung, Cardiac, Gastric and Abdominal ultrasound.

Our goal is to encourage anesthesiologists to seek further education and training in these POCUS skills.
