Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) is being used more frequently today in pediatric emergency medicine departments. It has become an important adjunct for clinical diagnosis and procedural guidance. We present a case report of a patient who presented to our Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) and was diagnosed with myocarditis using cardiac ultrasound at the start of her resuscitation. Point-of-care ultrasound was found beneficial in making a crucial diagnosis of myocarditis at the initial stage of resuscitation. POCUS directed the quick management and eventual connection of the patient to Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) which contributed to the better outcome of the resuscitation.
