This book describes how shock and unstable patients can be managed with Echo Guided Life Support (EGLS).

The EGLS algorithm is a simple and effective framework that combines lung, cardiac, and IVC ultrasound. The algorithm provides a rapid step by step approach to help categorize shock and guide the initial management of shock patients. 

The concepts reviewed in this book are useful for any physician likely to encounter unstable patients in the emergency room, the ICU, the operating room, or on the wards.
