PURPOSE: Intensivists perform point of care ultrasound (POCUS) to differentiate causes of shock and respiratory failure with a high degree of accuracy.

We assessed the accuracy, quality and rapidity of pulmonary and critical care (PCCM) fellow-performed goal-directed echocardiography (GDE) by comparing their interpretation to PCCM attending interpretations and formal cardiology-reviewed trans-thoracic echocardiograms (TTE).
