10:10 - 10:20 #18334 - OP070 Prevalence and Utility of Point-Of-Care Ultrasound in the Emergency Department: a prospective observational study.
OP070 Prevalence and Utility of Point-Of-Care Ultrasound in the Emergency Department: a prospective observational study.

Abstract

 

OBJECTIVE: An observational study on the current diagnostic and procedural utility and impact of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) in Emergency Departments (ED).

 

BACKGROUND:Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) has been recognised as a useful noninvasive, bedside tool, providing additional information as well as it’s utility in procedural guidance for clinicians, However, its current use in the ED remains unknown.

 

METHODS: In October 2016, a 31-day prospective observational study was performed in three Monash Health Emergency Departments in Melbourne, Australia. Data regarding patients’ presenting complaints, frequency, operators’ qualifications, and POCUS module were collected and analysed. Factors associated with diagnostic impacts were identified.

 

RESULTS:A total of 390 (2.82%) POCUS examinations were performed among 13,822 adult presentationsin the three Monash Health EDs during the 31-day study period. 292 (74.9%) cases were retrieved from electronic medical records (Symphony), recorded as Clinician-Performed Ultrasound (CPU);and 98 (25.1%) cases from written records which were collected by research assistants. POCUS was performed as a diagnostic tool in 344 (88.2%) and procedural in 46 (11.8%) cases. eFAST/AAA and BELS were the two most frequently utilised diagnostic modalities. Overall, the majority of diagnostic POCUS cases were indicated for abdominal pain (35.3%), chest pain (14.0%) and trauma (5.8%). Procedural POCUS was most commonly used for vascular access (57.9%), where dyspnoea (21.6%) was the most common presenting complaint. Majority of the cases were performed by FACEMs (fellows of Australasian college of Emergency Medicine) (67.7%). 

 

CONCLUSIONS: Despite known diagnostic and procedural advantages, the prevalence of POCUS in our EDs was found to be lower than what was expected. However, as this is a sigle network/centre study in a limited period of time,it might have resulted in under-reporting of POCUS use. In our study, POCUS mostly served for diagnostic purposes. Prevalence was shown to be proportional to the level of clinical expertise among the operators. Training and utility of POCUS among physicians should be further advocated and supported.
