It’s really hard to shift gears from routine consults to dropping everything to deal with an unexpected emergency case. You have to remain calm and be able to flip a switch – moving from the routine to the urgent and critical. This conference aims to leave you with the capability to make that transition seamlessly.
Ex pat Australian vets, Kate Hopper (UC Davis) and Dominic Barfield (RVC) and local experts Merrin Hicks and Sam Long, will help you develop an instinctive, first principles approach and provide you with some useful rules of thumb. They will help you to avoid cognitive overload in these high-pressure situations by demonstrating key clinical markers to help narrow down your list of differential diagnoses. And they will assist you with refining the art of critical care medicine – starting to make the patient better whilst you’re still working out what’s going on.
The collapsed patient, updates in CPR and approach to respiratory distress will all be discussed, along with intoxications, blocked cats and pain relief and sedation within the ER. Our presenters will share their own hard-learned lessons to help you identify and avoid common mistakes in critical care.
