Fate- Focused Assessment of Transthoracic Endocardiogram

M Simulation continues to support the Focused Assessment of Transthoracic Echocardiogram (FATE) course that is run by the Department of Anesthesiology which began in mid-2017. We have worked with the program staff to acquire and administer high-end ultrasound equipment to support the needs of the curriculum.

FATE is the original focused cardiac echo protocol practiced since 1989. FATE is learned quickly and easily and can be applied in a multitude of clinical scenarios: perioperative as well as in intensive care medicine, emergency medicine and resuscitation - there are no limitations. FATE also provides a quick guidance to interpret sonocardiographic findings and how to put them into clinical context.
