FAST & RELIABLE Shock protocol
In the words of the authors, FAST & RELIABLE is “a comprehensive ultrasound protocol aimed to quickly differentiate between the major causes of hypotension”. Some of the components of the protocol may be slightly beyond the skills of a beginner POCUS practitioner. Those skills, e.g.
Sagittal and transverse views of the uterus and adnexae in the suprapubic area , DVT scanning at femoral and popliteal veins, are not unachievable skills.
