"Take Home Points
  1. POCUS in isolation had good correlation with diagnosis determined by emergency physician for patients with undifferentiated dyspnea.
  2. POCUS lead to decreased time to diagnosis although limitations to the comparison.
  3. POCUS showed overall high specificity and lower sensitivities for etiologies of acute dyspnea in the emergency department."
