Dr. Blaivas serves as a Professor of Medicine at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, and works clinically in the St. Francis Hospital Emergency Department in Columbus, Georgia. In this article, Dr. Blaivas and coauthors seek to establish evidence-based guidelines for the use of bedside ultrasound by intensivists and specialists in the intensive care unit (ICU) and equivalent care sites for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes for organs of the chest, abdomen, pelvis, neck and extremities.
