A short cut review was performed to assess the utility of emergency physician echocardiography in patients with cardiac arrest. Six studies with a total of 434 patients were found. The authors, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results and study weaknesses are tabulated. The clinical bottom line is that cardiac standstill witnessed in emergency physician echocardiography is predictive of a poor outcome in cardiac arrest.
