Figure 1: Point-of-care cardiac ultrasound shows (a and b) significantly enlarged left ventricle and left atrium, especially the left ventricle (arrow). Diffused weakening of the left ventricle wall motion is also noted. The patient was also noted to have coexisted aortic regurgitation which was not properly demonstrated during point-of-care cardiac ultrasound. (c) A subsequently comprehensive transthoracic echocardiogram at a later time revealed the coexisted aortic regurgitation (arrow). The left ventricular ejection fraction was 32%[17]
