On page xvii of the book, “Point of Care Ultrasound for Emergency Physicians” (aka the EDE book), we refer to an Online Video List which is available on the EDE 2 website. These are the videos. Please refer to the book for further explanation.
An example of a live intrauterine pregnancy seen in the longitudinal plane with a curved array probe. Note the decidual reaction, gestational sac, and fetal pole with fetal cardiac activity. An indistinct yolk sac is seen at the 9 o’clock position. The amnion is also visible.

The IVC diameter collapses by more than half with normal inspiration. This patient is more likely to benefit from IV fluids.
Advanced Cardiac EDE-1
An example of normal left ventricular systolic function as seen in the parasternal long view. Note the normal fractional shortening, left ventricular diameter, and the “septal slap”.
Advanced Cardiac EDE-2
An example of normal left ventricular systolic function as seen in the apical 4 chamber view. Note the normal fractional shortening, left ventricular diameter, and the “septal slap”.
Advanced Cardiac EDE-4
In this patient with hypovolemic shock, the left ventricle is beating vigorously. There is a relatively small amount of blood in the left ventricle which all but disappears with each contraction.
Advanced Cardiac EDE-5
In this patient with right ventricular strain due to a large pulmonary embolus, the right ventricular chamber is larger than the left ventricular chamber. In fact, the left ventricle is relatively empty and hyperdynamic with thickened walls. The walls of the right ventricle are not contracting.
Advanced Cardiac EDE-6
Paul Olszynski and Donna Fan present Student's Corner on right ventricular strain and the use of EDE.
Paul Olszynski and Jordon Steeg present Student's Corner on pneumothorax and its appearance on EDE.
In this patient with a right mainstem intubation, the beating heart is creating movement along the pleural line.
Multiple B lines are seen in this patient with pulmonary edema from congestive heart failure.

Joint Effusion EDE-5
An elbow arthrocentesis is being performed with the needle entering lateral to the probe.
Paul Olszynski and Donovan MacDonald present Student's Corner on jugular venous pressure and the use of EDE.
This retinal detachment is located at one extreme of the retina and is only seen when the patient is asked to move their eye.
A posterior vitreous detachment is seen as a thin white linear structure which exhibits aftermovements.
