Basic FATE Course


The University of Minnesota Department of Anesthesiology, in conjunction with UltraSound Airway Breathing Circulation Dolor (USABCD), offers physicians of all specialties a special opportunity to complete a FATE training course.

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.

Basic FATE (e-learning + one-day Hands-on-Training course): Based on two-dimensional imaging of the easiest cardiac views including M-mode.
