This talk will build on the concepts discussed in Part I to consider how PoCUS can elucidate complex pathophysiological processes and their management.It will review early sonographic signs of critical illness and sonographic recognition of complications of resuscitation. Dr Harris will review ways that Pocus helps optimize Right heart/Left Heart interdependence, fluid management, use of inotropes, priorities of resuscitation (“resuscitate before you intubate“) and ventilator management.
More advanced sonographic techniques including VEXUS, cardiac output and fluid responsiveness evaluation with VTI will be discussed. Recent literature that is changing standards of ultrasound use in sepsis and resuscitation will be reviewed.
Registrants are encouraged to contribute their questions, doubts, and personal perspectives. As in Part I, this will be the basis of lively discussion among the speaker and panelists.
Please be ready to join and participate!
