Abstract:

POCUS offers multiple capabilities in a relatively small, lightweight device to military clinicians of all types, and levels in multiple environments. Its application in diagnostics, procedural guidance, and patient monitoring has not been fully explored by the MHS. The purpose of this narrative review of literature was to examine the overall use of POCUS in military settings, as well as the level of ultrasound training provided.
