Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension  Course: RUSH Exam Course

Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension (RUSH Exam) is a protocol in which the ultrasound is used to diagnose shock in the patient who presents with undifferentiated hypotension.  The Rapid Ultrasonography in Hypotension exam teaches the clinician how to rapidly identify the etiology of shock by examining the heart for tamponade, right ventricular enlargement and left ventricular function, intravascular volume status (fluid responsiveness), aorta for aneurysm or dissection and the deep veins of the legs for DVT.

Our RUSH exam training is a component of our live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course which teaches clinicians how to perform the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards.
