Cardiac Arrest Sonographic Assessment

R.E.B.E.L. EM - Emergency Medicine Blog
R.E.B.E.L.EM - October 01, 2018  - By Salim Rezaie
Author Conclusion:
“In this pre and post-intervention study, the implementation of a structured algorithm for ultrasound use during cardiac arrest significantly reduced the duration of CPR interruptions when ultrasound was performed.”
Clinical Take Home Point: 
Having a scripted protocol for POCUS in cardiac arrest, and placing the probe on the chest during compressions are associated with shorter duration of CPR pulse checks, but even with the CASA exam, CPR pulse checks are still longer than without the use of POCUS. Having a dedicated counter can ensure that pauses with POCUS do not last longer than 10 seconds.
