Patients with undifferentiated shock, hypotension, chest pain, or dyspnea are ideal candidates for focused cardiac ultrasound (FOCUS).
In addition, any patient in whom the diagnosis of pericardial effusion or tamponade, pulmonary embolism, or left ventricular dysfunction is suspected would benefit from FOCUS.
The SIFULTRAS-5.42 is doctors first choice for FOCUS. When a patient is suddenly symptomatic in the intensive care unit, the emergency department, or the prehospital setting, Focused Cardiac Ultrasound using the portable ultrasound scanners SIFULTRAS-5.42 can provide critical information quickly.
Of particular importance is the use of FOCUS to rapidly determine the etiology of cardiac arrest. The purpose of the FOCUS examination is to provide at the point of care, timely, repeatable diagnostic information the moment a question arises.
More than any other application, FOCUS benefits from the advantages of point-of-care ultrasound. For the critically ill patient for whom a less-monitored setting is undesirable, FOCUS at the point of care is ideal.
The ability to quickly repeat a point-of-care ultrasound examination is most important in evaluation of the heart.
The SIFULTRAS-5.42 in this case, 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.
This allows you to observe changes in cardiac physiology in real time.
