Focused Cardiac Ultrasound (Basic FATE)
During this focused cardiac ultrasound workshop you will learn how to gather and interpret basic echocardiographic findings and put them into the clinical context. The course is based on the FATE protocol which is easily and quickly learned. Most importantly, FATE can be applied in all clinical scenarios: perioperatively, pre- and inhospitally, in intensive care or emergency settings.
The objective is to provide basic echocardiographic skills for physicians who are not specialists of cardiology in order to guide cardiac optimisation.
In the workshop you will learn about the following:
- Basic cardiac views including IVC
- Right and left ventricle function
- Basic clinical scenario training
- Pleural scanning
Pre-workshop e-learning material
All USabcd courses are based on the concept of combined e-learning and hands-on training. This means that in order for you to make the most out of the hands-on training, all e-learning modules and the post-test must be completed prior to the workshop.
In the e-learning you will learn about equipment and skills, basic imaging views, M-mode (not FICE), cardiac function and pathology.
The e-learning is included in the course registration fee, and you will get permanent access to it in your account immediately after registering. Therefore, you can start your training now and always come back and revise if necessary.
You do not need any prior ultrasound experience to attend this course.
Who can attend?
Physicians from all specialities can attend. For example, anaesthesiologists, intensivists, emergency physicians, internal medicine physicians, surgeons, general practitioners. In other words, all healthcare workers dealing with hemodynamic problems in their daily clinic will benefit from this focused cardiac ultrasound course.
Hands-on workshop programme
9.45am – 4pm. You will receive a detailed programme closer to the course.
The teaching language is English unless all participants in a group speak Danish. All e-learning, however, is in English. The Basic Cardiac Ultrasound (FATE) e-learning is also available in German, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese, so if you would prefer one of those languages, please send an email to email@example.com.
You will receive a certificate after completion of the e-learning and the workshop.
