Abstract

Over the years, the use of ultrasound has moved solely from the domain of the radiologist to that of the intensivist and emergentologist for use in acute care settings. By virtue of its ease of use and rapid learning curve to proficiency, we are now seeing an increased desire by internists to learn the modality and apply it at the patient’s bedside. The rapid response system represents a rational starting point for the introduction of point-of-care ultrasound to the inpatient ward setting.
