There are reports on the utility of bedside ultrasound in diagnosis of Aortic Dissection (AD). We reported a 60-year-old man that was presented with clinical features of right ventricular myocardial infarction, but further investigations raised the possibility of AD. Immediate bedside ultrasound in acute care room revealed an intimal flap along the descending Aorta. Emergency bedside ultrasound expedited decision making and prevented any delay in the management of this patient.
