An ideal text for acute care physicians working in the ER, the ICU, the OR, the wards or in the pre-hospital arena, this handbook helps novice and intermediate clinician-sonographers turn their image-generating skill into a clinically useful integration of pathology and physiology. Rather than a simple how-to handbook, this is a how-to-think and how-to-use. Point of care ultrasound is the present, and soon to be standard of care for any physician dealing with acutely ill patients in whom a rapid and accurate diagnosis is of utmost importance.
Dr. Rola has created the ideal compendium for contemporary healthcare professionals. Bedside Ultrasound: a primer for clinical integration concisely and intuitively describes the essentials of examining a patient in the 21st century. The guide is both unique and useful because it speaks to all levels of training for all professionals caring for patients within multiple hospital environments – the emergency department, general medical ward, operating room and intensive care unit. Dr. Rola’s succinct account of ultrasound examination leads the reader through a patient’s anatomical and physiological underpinnings using the ultrasound probe as his guide; it is a resource to be found in the pocket - virtual or otherwise - of all those interested in the future of the physical exam.

I am an emergency physician in the US and cannot say enough about Dr. Rola’s teaching style. This is such a great resource for the clinician looking to up their ultrasound game! I’ve attended Dr. Rola’s CCU Institute conferences and have heard him lecture. He is an icon in the world of criticial care. 5 thumbs up!
