We know that POCUS can be used in making many diagnoses in the critically ill patient. It also can help guide management. So why not perform it every day on every patient? That is the idea behind this article on POCUS rounds in the ICU. These authors compare patients who received a daily POCUS to those who did not - with real patient-centered outcomes! Is it too good to be true? Is a daily POCUS rounds something you should be doing in your ICU?
