Ultrasonography has become an invaluable tool in the management of critically ill and injured patients due to its portability, ease of use and accurate evaluation. Ultrasound is relatively inexpensive and presents little threat to patients and practitioners. With demand for ultrasound on the rise and new developments in technology, it is imperative that critical care practitioners stay up to date in this advanced modality.
