Abstract

PEREZ CATERIANO, Víctor  and  PASCO ULLOA, Jamille Charlot. Utility of bedside cardiac ultrasound in the management of cardiac tamponade. Horiz. Med. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp.79-82. ISSN 1727-558X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24265/horizmed.2017.v17n3.13.

In recent years, both in different studies and in usual clinical practice, it has been demonstrated the utility of bedside ultrasound to optimize the management of critically ill patients. Today it should be an additional tool to guide us in the management of these patients. This article presents the utility of bedside ultrasound in the disease detection and management of a female patient with early signs of cardiac tamponade before the development of severe hypotension. Such ultrasound allowed making an early decision for her treatment, which subsequently affected her recovery

Keywords : Ultrasound; bedside; cardiac tamponade.
