PV Card: Focused 1st Trimester Pregnancy Transabdominal Ultrasound

Scott Kobner |

Intrauterine pregnancy first trimester ultrasound transaabdominal

Although history, physical, and lab tests are obtained for patients with first trimester vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain, none compare to the utility of bedside ultrasonography. Today’s PV card reviews the transabdominal approach to the focused pregnancy ultrasound and was written by Drs. Matt Lipton, Mike Mallon, and Mike Stone.
