From the Inside Out: Thoughts From the Terason uSmart System Part 3

April 18th – Iredell EMS used the Ultrasound for the first time on an Level 2 trauma who was tachycardic and complaining of abdominal pain. Thankfully, the FAST exam was non-diagnostic for free fluid in the abdomen. More impressively, no fluid was found on her CT either. We have a protocol to notify the trauma centers if we have positive or negative studies, but to date (4-18-16) 5 studies have been done. All were non-diagnostic in the field, and none were later found to have fluid where it shouldn’t be. So far, so good! I can’t wait for the first true positive – talk about being able to help. Giving the trauma team a 20 minute “heads-up” about critically injured patients will be incredible.”
