Emergency Medicine: Theory & Practice
Few things get the adrenaline pumping like being faced with an emergency case. The decisions you make over those first critical minutes and hours can be the difference between a great outcome – or a terrible day.
This practically-oriented course will allow you to brush up on your emergency management techniques and gain a deeper understanding of how treatment choices impact outcomes.
Prioritising injuries in animals with multiple trauma, formulating fluid therapy plans, effectively performing CPR, placing a chest drain: all of these are skills that you need if you’re dealing with small animal emergencies.
The packed program also includes a practical guide to transfusions in cats and dogs, treatment options for haemabdomen and managing respiratory distress. Analgesia and anaesthesia in the critical patient, identification and treatment of shock and toxicity management will all be discussed.
If you deal with emergency cases, this course is a must. The tips you learn might just be key to saving a life.
At the conclusion of this course you will be able to -
- Assess an animal with multiple trauma, eg the cat or dog hit by car: what are the priorities in these cases, and what comes next
- Develop appropriate fluid therapy plans for patients in the different types of shock for hypovolaemic patients, and for ongoing maintenance
- Confidently run and interpret admission blood tests including blood gases
- Master surgical procedures such as the practical ability to place a central line, chest drain O-tube, a urinary catheter and perform an epidural.
