Brief: 

Emerging trends in prehospital treatment for emergencies increasingly includes the utilization of portable ultrasound. Recent studies have shown a sensitivity and specificity approaching 100% with physician overreads. Having the skills to perform abdominal and chest trauma exams, the FAST procedure, pregnancy, and cardiac ultrasound can make a significant difference in patient outcomes. Ultrasound is invaluable in venous access, and line placement can be difficult without ultrasound guidance. Prehospital FAST exams have been shown to trigger changes in therapy or management in more than 30% of the patients when used for abdominal trauma.
