Abstract

Ultrasound studies to detect DVT are traditionally performed and interpreted by sonographers and radiologists, respectively, but the growth of point-of-care ultrasound is putting this powerful tool in the hands of front-line physicians. Literature from ambulatory patients in the ED suggests this tool performs well in the hands of nonconventional users, and it is now being commonly deployed to aid in the management of critically ill patients. This article presents an approach for incorporating these tools into bedside practice, including illustrative figures and narrated video presentations to demonstrate the techniques described.
