What is EMUGs?
EMUGs is a not-for-profit, special interest group focused on progressing POCUS in Emergency Medicine.
To support clinicians to perform and integrate high quality ultrasound in acute care.
To improve patient outcomes through the universal practice of focused ultrasound in acute care settings
We believe that the use of Point-Of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) in the Emergency Department improves patient care and patient outcomes.
