Focused Cardiac Ultrasound (FOCUS) refers to the use of ultrasound to evaluate cardiac pathophysiology at the point of care. FOCUS is used in intensive care units and emergency departments to evaluate patients in shock, with dyspnea and chest pain. Prehospital providers are using ultrasound to evaluate for cardiac trauma.
The Color Doppler 3 in 1 Wireless Ultrasound Scanner 3in1-CLC1CD is highly recommended to our intensivists, anesthesiologists, emergency medicine physicians clients. In which it provides qualitative and quantitative data.
Cardiovascular diseases are often associated with pulmonary abnormalities /manifestations (such as pulmonary oedema and pleural effusions), lung ultrasound examination (LUS), this should be considered in the FOCUS core curriculum.
For the critically ill patient for whom a less-monitored setting is undesirable, FOCUS at the point of care is ideal.
The 3in1 Wireless Ultrasound Scanner 3in1-CLC1CD includes Convex, Linear, and Phased Array scan modes. All in one probe. There is no need to change the probe’s head. This can be done by simply changing the software.
Color Doppler feature in The 3in1-CLC1CD enables measuring the velocity and direction of blood flow inside the various heart vessels and its chambers. Yet, The ability to quickly repeat a point-of-care ultrasound examination is most important in the evaluation of the heart.
FOCUS is usually done by machines smaller than those used in the echocardiography lab to perform comprehensive assessments. For this reason, using small, handhelds, and pocket-sized Ultrasound Scanner is needed.
FOCUS, performed at the bedside by the provider actively managing a patient, offers the potential for timely, repeatable, nonionizing diagnostic information, and procedural guidance.
Last but not least, the Ultrasound Scanner can be used, for example, to determine whether fluid resuscitation has improved an initially hyperdynamic, underfilled heart or to reevaluate left ventricular (LV) function after initiation of inotropic therapy.
