This chapter will review the targets for ultrasound assessment, including biventricular function, extravascular water, and systemic volume assessment. Importantly, it will discuss how to differentiate cardiogenic from non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, how to recognize acute cor pulmonale, and when to look for a patent foramen ovale. The advanced section will introduce Doppler-based methods to evaluate right ventricular systolic function and pulmonary arterial systolic pressure, which can both become compromised in acute respiratory distress syndrome.
