SHoC Network – Sonography in Hypotension and Cardiac-Arrest

The Sonography in Hypotension and Cardiac-Arrest (SHoC) Network is an international group of clinicians and researchers committed to advancing the evidence around the use of Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) in critically ill patients. The group evolved from a research network established by the International Federation for Emergency Medicine (IFEM) Ultrasound Interest Group, involving several PoCUS leaders from several international emergency medicine organizations.

The SHoC Network has been instrumental in initiating several research projects, as well as producing clinical guidelines. Further details are shown below.
