The use of Goal-directed Templates is mandatory for success on a number of fronts:

  1. Keeps you focused on a disciplined approach
  2. Sets clear objectives for the examination(s)
  3. Gives value to you, your colleagues, and the patient so that findings are recorded and may then be compared to future examinations
  4. Allows for reviewing training needs

Example(s) for the Abdominal FAST (AFAST) Goal-directed Template edited to your liking

Example(s) for the Thoracic FAST (TFAST) Goal-directed Template edited to your liking

Example(s) for the Vet BLUE (Vet BLUE) Goal-directed Template edited to your liking

Example for the Global FAST (GFAST) Goal-directed Template edited to your liking

Consider blending Goal-directed Templates to the order you will perform the acoustic windows (views) and changes may occur over time as you decide what works best for you.  The entry “indeterminate” means that you looked but could not make a decision for what every reason vs. “NA” means not assessed that means you never looked.  These are really helpful for the learning process when reviewing subsequent findings.  There is nothing wrong with either entry because it’s not possible for a variety of good reasons that the study was incomplete.
