USG is a time-consuming procedure, and necessary qualifications are required to safely perform and interpret these studies. Over the past decade, many critical care training programs have integrated POC USG into their curricula. However, there are many more senior intensivists who were never trained or might have lost their USG skills over time. It is also important to understand that these studies are focused and may not answer all clinically relevant questions. A study by Martin and colleagues2 showed that adding handheld ultrasound to physical examination increased the accuracy of hospitalists’ assessment of cardiomegaly, pericardial effusion, and left ventricular dysfunction but failed to improve assessment of valvular heart disease.
