Point of care ultrasound reading list

College library


At the bedside, registrants are often relying less on auscultation by analog stethoscopes and more on visualization by digital, portable ultrasound devices. In other words, they are relying on point of care ultrasound (POCUS).  

As a starting point or as a refresher, a reading list on POCUS is available for registrants, composed of ebooks, ebook chapters, online journal articles, and guidelines. The widespread use of POCUS is reflected in the reading list’s content, touching on anesthesiology, obstetrics, emergencies, and respiratory disease as well as general overviews and quick tips. For a deeper dive into POCUS in any aspect of medicine, contact College librarians for an up-to-date literature search or use this online form.
