About

Background: Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been suggested as a useful tool in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) for diagnosis and treatment of reversible causes. However, in prehospital emergency medicine performing ultrasound and the translation of the findings can be challenging. As new prehospital ultrasound devices offer the possibility for remote supervision, the impact of tele-supervision on the performance of POCUS during OHCA is unclear. Aims: This prospective observational study aims to evaluate if POCUS with tele-supervision can be performed during CPR without any additional hands-off periods longer than 5 seconds. Methods: In total 30 patients with OHCA, where POCUS is considered, will be included in this study.
