POCUS access


The DDU (Critical Care and Emergency) and CCPU (Lung, RCE, Pleural Effusion) certified members have received a short survey regarding access to ultrasound.


ASUM continues to advocate with government to support access to ultrasound equipment to support diagnosis, management and monitoring of COVID-19 patients. We would appreciate 1 minute of your time to capture current access and areas of need in your department.


While we continue to advocate for recognition of point-of-care ultrasound, we are focussed on the immediate need for access to ultrasound equipment to perform lung and/or cardiac ultrasound in the fight against COVID-19.
