Bedside ultrasound has been shown to change and direct patient management in the emergent setting. Demand, use, and diagnostic potential of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has continually increased throughout the years. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and physical distancing have necessitated further POCUS innovation. With the advent of affordable portable ultrasound devices, teleultrasound teaching has become a more viable method of POCUS education, especially in resource-limited settings. Here, we provide a scoping review of the current state of teleultrasound, specifically its use for educational purposes.
