Focused Cardiac Ultrasound

Focused cardiac ultrasound (FOCUS) refers to the use of ultrasound to evaluate cardiac pathophysiology at the point of care, by providers actively managing a patient. FOCUS differs from both limited and comprehensive echocardiography with respect to the location where it is done, the providers doing the study, the devices used, and, most importantly, the scope of the examination. FOCUS is used in intensive care units and emergency departments to evaluate patients in shock, with dyspnea and chest pain. Anesthesiologists, emergency physicians, intensivists, and a growing number of other providers throughout the healthcare system are using cardiac ultrasound in this directed fashion.
