Point-Of-Care Ultrasound Examinations (POCUS) are a form of targeted scans used in emergencies to answer specific diagnostic questions. The APOCUS can be used to identify peritoneal and retroperitoneal free fluid. The technique is safe, quick, and can be repeated, allowing it to be used for ongoing patient monitoring. It does not replace a full and systematic abdominal ultrasound examination.
