Abstract

In contrast to adult emergency medicine, bedside ultrasound has not been widely used in pediatric emergency medicine. Recent literature suggests that bedside ultrasound may have multiple uses for pediatric emergency care. This review will provide an overview on how to implement this tool into a pediatric emergency department and the integration of ultrasonography into a fellowship curriculum. In addition, this article will highlight evidence derived from the technology and business literature regarding the development of this technology for pediatric emergency medicine. Special emphasis will be placed on practical evidence to identify barriers to adoption as well as strategies to overcome these barriers.
