Overview

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. This is a practical, concise introduction to what is rapidly becoming an essential tool for all critical care physicians: bedside emergency ultrasound. The Manual covers the full spectrum of conditions 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 reviewing the image-acquisition skills needed to answer them. Images of positive and negative findings are presented, and 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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the second edition of an introduction to ultrasound applications in emergency department and intensive care unit practice. The first edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: Optimizing the application of rapidly evolving ultrasound technology is the purpose of this update.
Audience: Teachers and students using ultrasound at the bedside will find this book helpful. The authors are from Harvard Medical School and Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.
Features: After an introduction to physics and ultrasound technology, the largest group of chapters, 13 of the 16, emphasizes diagnostic applications. Initial chapters focus on cardiopulmonary diagnostics and evaluation of the trauma patient. Subsequent chapters investigate individual organ systems including the newly pregnant patient, abdominal aorta, genitourinary, gallbladder, and soft tissue applications. A separate chapter identifies variations in care required for the pediatric patient. The final diagnostic chapter presents an evaluation strategy for the patient in shock. Two chapters describe procedural applications. The first of these describes vascular access and the second reviews applications such as joint aspiration, abscess drainage, and pericardiocentesis. Chapters are clearly written, well illustrated, and conclude with an annotated literature review. Citations represent primary sources and date to within one year of publication. In many cases, older papers are cited if they represent important contributions. The table of contents lists chapters along with subheadings. A subject index of 10 pages provides adequate review of content.
Assessment: This well-written overview of a vital clinical technology is the second well-developed book on this topic to be published in recent months. The other, excellent resource is Handbook of Critical Care and Emergency Ultrasound, Carmody et al. (McGraw Hill, 2011).
