Pediatric patients with suspicion of congenital heart abnormalities can be very intimidating! In this week's podcast Jacob speaks with one of our pediatric POCUS experts regarding congenital heart abnormalities and how the average provider might be able to evaluate them.  Your point-of-care exam should never replace a cardiology-performed echo, but your exam can definitely help you in your work-up.  Here are Russ's tips:

  1. Hypoplastic left heart - Look for a small left ventricle
  2. Coarctation of the aorta - Look at the pulsed-wave Doppler waveform of the abdominal aorta
  3. Heart failure - Look at the lungs
