Show me the POCUS

Point Of Care Ultrasound for the Anesthesiologist

Maximize your POCUS learning experience with high quality educational content and images, algorithms to help you in clinical practice, a Q bank and an image gallery. All open-source, evidence based and free. 

Choose your area of diagnostic POCUS by clicking on the title: 

This is your only POCUS source. While physics, lung, heart and gastric are the main focus for diagnostic POCUS currently recognized by the American Board of Anesthesiology, this website goes beyond this constraint by offering artifacts, airway, trans-cranial doppler, eye and renal ultrasound. You can also find 3d models that can be used in augmented reality. We have also included procedural ultrasound for central access, airway, lumbar, iv confirmation and thoracentesis/paracentesis. 

Planes for days: Orient yourself with the cardiac views to improve your knowledge of the anatomic structures with the use of these short clips:
