Abstract

Ultrasound continues to grow in use for rapid diagnosis and assessment within the emergency department. This diagnostic tool aids the physician in early diagnosis for resuscitation of the critical patient. With new emerging research airway ultrasound shows promise as not only a diagnostic but also a therapeutic adjunct to a patients care. In addition, thoracic ultrasound allows for evaluation of insults to the breathing component of resuscitation and also can diagnostically direct therapy earlier than previously available in critical care areas.
