As seen on INTENSIVE, fantastic work from Josh Ihle, Lloyd Roberts and Chris Nickson:


Bedside echo is becoming an integral part of intensive care medicine, offering real time haemodynamic evaluation. Although not everyone is expected to be an expert, every intensive care specialist should be able to obtain the basic views and perform a ‘level 1’ study.

This video explains how to perform a ‘level 1 plus’ study, which includes not only basic questions of a level one study, but also explains how to obtain some valuable measurements such as PA pressures and cardiac output.
