Purpose: To describe the scientific evidence about bedside ultrasound performed by health professionals in a critical environment. Method: Scope review based on Joanna Briggs Institute methodological terms and standards, guided by the question “How is the use of Point-of-Care Ultrasound - POCUS / ultrasound at the bedside described in the literature by health professionals in direct care to critical patients?”. The search involves nine databases and in the gray literature. The selection of evidence is in three stages, and the Mendeley software is used for the management of study references. The studies evaluation is based on the pre-established inclusion criteria, and was carried out by three reviewers, two independently and a third for the assessment of differences. The extracted data has a descriptive and synthetic presentation of the results.
