"The book focuses on the time tested way of "the Socratic method" to teach the key concepts to busy clinical cardiologists, fellows, anesthesiologists and sonographers using a multiple choice question & answer format. The book will emphasize diagnostic interpretation rather than clinical management. This book is comprehensive with chapters ranging from fundamentals to new technologies. The format of each chapter is standardized with 3 types of questions. At the beginning, there are simple Type I questions followed by an answer. Then, Type II questions involving a question associated with a still frame graphic (M-Mode, 2-D or a 3-D) come next and are followed by an answer. Finally, Type III questions are presented involving case studies associated with several questions based on movies and still frames"--

Die Ultraschalldiagnostik erobert die Notfallmedizin. Die Notfallsonographie ist mittlerweile fester Bestandteil der Untersuchung eines Patienten in einer Akutsituation. Die Sonographie wird dabei nicht nur innerhalb eines Krankenhauses durchgeführt, z.B. auf Intensivstationen und in Notaufnahmen, sondern zunehmend auch in Form kleiner tragbarer Geräte direkt am Ort des Notfallgeschehens. Potenziell lebensbedrohliche Krankheitsbilder lassen sich mit dem Ultraschall schneller und sicherer diagnostizieren, und damit notfallmedizinische Entscheidungen und Maßnahmen noch frühzeitiger treffen. Über 350 Abbildungen zeigen wie man typische Notfallbefunde mit dem Ultraschall erkennt: • Anatomie und Sonomorphologie aller Organe • Untersuchungsablauf und Optimierungsmöglichkeiten • Die häufigsten Notfallbefunde und deren Differenzialdiagnosen • Informationen zum weiteren diagnostischen und therapeutischen Vorgehen. Die Inhalte des Buches orientieren sich an der 3-Länder-übergreifenden Basisausbildung und dem Curriculum Notfallsonographie von DEGUM, ÖGUM und SGUM. Ebenso sind die Inhalte der Konzepte, wie e-FAST und FEEL integriert. Ein praxisorientiertes und interdisziplinäres Buch - richtet sich an alle Ärzte, die Ultraschall zur Diagnostik unklarer und akuter Befunde einsetzen möchten.
