aced with a patient in the emergency department who might have increased intracranial pressure, Kristi Koenig, MD, reaches for one of her most valuable tools — the ultrasound machine — to rule out the possibility that forces are building inside the skull.
Dr. Koenig, the director of the Center for Disaster Medical Services and a professor of emergency medicine at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, said ultrasound is a powerful tool for diagnosis in the emergency department. “In this case,” she said, “we can rule out elevated intracranial pressure. The ultrasound is a tremendous -triage tool with high sensitivity to detect people who need more monitoring.”
