“Use of point of care Echo by Emergency Physicians and its impact on patient management”Ashit Mitra, Edited by: Azam Majeed, July 2018.
A fit & healthy 36 years old gentleman presented in ED with chest pain & SOB. He had these symptoms for last 5 days. “He firmly believed he has chest infection”. The traditional bedside testing including ECG, CXR and bloods (full blood count, troponin, D Dimer) were all normal.
The bedside echo showed a moderate size global pericardial effusion. Everything just became so clear in my head and all his symptoms started to fit into a diagnosis. I was now confident and happy to give my patient a diagnosis and further management plan.
