Cardiac Protocol by Dr A. Lapointe

Echocardiographic protocol for SANE-Ug


Vital signs:

HR : BP :

Bring the room dark.

Wash your hands and clean the probe and the IPad with wipes.

Plug in the Butterly iQ+ on the IPad and open the Application.

Install yourself comfortably at the bedside. Bring the Ipad close to you in a manner you can press buttons for analyze and saving.

Put the ultrasound Gel on the Probe

Identify the patient: Study ID, WEIGHT, BP, echo DAY 2 4

Start scanning.
