About this book


This text presents a basic guide of the principles and applications of ultrasound in the critical care setting. The text also addresses the basic and clinical uses of ultrasound, including a final chapter with clinical cases and integration of the knowledge to clinical practice.  Additionally one of the chapters focus on the issues of training, certification, credentialing and billing. These discussions make the text unique, as literature regarding monetary and training issues for ultrasound in the ICU is sparse. Each chapter is written by experts in the field, and supplemented with illustrations and links to videos of actual ultrasound examinations in patients.

Ultrasonography in the ICU: Practical Applications will be of great utility to critical care specialists in the disciplines of surgery, medicine, anesthesiology and emergency medicine. In addition this book can be used as a teaching tool for critical care fellows and residents interested in further training in ultrasound for the critically ill patient.
