Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is a widely used diagnostic tool, especially in emergency and critical care medicine, and it is increasingly being used in the perioperative setting. Its specific role in preoperative assessment of patients, however, has not yet been defined. While some data show innovative use of the technique in the preoperative setting, higher-level evidence to underscore potential advantages is still limited. We review and discuss a range of POCUS examinations which can potentially help anaesthesiologists in the preoperative clinic decide whether to perform additional testing, can assist in selecting the best anaesthetic approach, and can support perioperative and postoperative monitoring.
