Abstract

Unlike practitioners of diagnostic sonography, point of care ultrasound users must often acquire basic ultrasound skills in far shorter time frames, with less time dedicated to obtaining mastery, and therefore often rely on conceptual models to achieve this. There is currently no introductory model which point of care ultrasound users might adopt to describe the cognitive processes involved in acquiring a basic ultrasound image, and in learning point of care ultrasonography. We propose the ‘Sonographic OODA Loop’ in reference to Boyd’s Observe -Orient –Decide-Act (OODA) decision loop, as a model which can be used initially by ultrasound-naive clinicians to understand the cognitive and motor processes that occur when they acquire ultrasound images, and hopefully achieve greater insight into their early practice.
