The Use of Point-of-Care Ultrasonography in Trauma Anesthesia

Caring for the trauma patient requires an in-depth knowledge of the pathophysiology of trauma, the ability to rapidly diagnose and intervene to reverse the derangements caused by shock states, and an aptitude for the use of advanced monitoring techniques and perioperative point-of-care ultrasonography (P-POCUS) to assist in diagnosis and delivery of care. Historically, anesthesiology has lagged behind in wholly embracing this technology. P-POCUS has the potential to allow the trauma anesthesiologist to diagnose numerous injuries, quickly guide the placement of central vascular catheters and invasive monitors, and assess the efficacy of interventions.
