Heart failure is a common disease and one of the main reasons of hospital admission. It is a rich research field, marked by regular novelties in the management of heart failure. In the last decades point-of-care ultrasonography has been more prominent in internal medicine, particularly for the management of heart failure. A structured training is required to acquire core competencies. In heart failure, this bedside tool includes focused lung, cardiac and vascular ultrasonography. The combination of these modalities raises diagnostic accuracy, reduce time to diagnosis in dyspneic patients and plays a role in adaptation of decongestive therapy.
