Traditional point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) training highlights discrete techniques, single-organ assessment, and focused protocols. More recent developments argue for a whole-body approach, where the experienced clinician-ultrasonographer crafts a personalized POCUS protocol depending on specific clinical circumstances. This article describes this problem-based approach, focusing on common acute care scenarios while highlighting practical considerations and performance characteristics.
