RUSH (Shock e hipotensión): protocolo

Academic Life  in Emergency Medicine
 Collaborating, meeting, and sharing with inspiring people in the academic world of EM
Saturday, June 1, 2013

"Patients with hypotension or shock have high mortality rates, and traditional physical exam techniques can be misleading. Diagnosis and initial care must be accurate and prompt to optimize patient care. Ultrasound is ideal for the evaluation of critically ill patients in shock, and ACEP guidelines now delineate a new category of ultrasound (US)-- “resuscitative.” Bedside US allows for direct visualization of pathology and differentiation of shock states.
The RUSH Protocol was first introduced in 2006 by Weingart SD et al, and later published in 2009. It was designed to be a rapid and easy to perform US protocol (<2 min) by most emergency physicians."
