Introduction to Gastric Ultrasound

If you’re ready to dive into basic gastric ultrasound for the determination of prandial status, here’s a great start. In our stay and subsequent publication in Anesthesiology News, we were able to take a large cohort of SRNAs from a 30% recognition rate to a 96% correct recognition rate of full stomach, in well under a single hour of presentation. Here are the actual slides, used in the study presentation, in PDF form for you to review. They’ll provide you with a solid foundation for the application of gastric ultrasound for NPO (prandial) status. So you can stop guessing, and start collecting real evidence to base your anesthesia decision as on. Enhance your relationships with surgeon and proceduristists, and take the next step to keep your patients safe. Provided for you here free of charge. We encourage you to keep learning and not use this reference as your sole source of information.
