A 5 part series on the Fundamentals of ECC with Shailen Jasani.
Emergency medicine is built upon a foundation of core principles and centres on the application of these principles to a diverse array of emergency presentations. In this course we will use the sadly common presentation of RTA cats to review some of the fundamentals of ECC and demonstrate their application to this particular patient population. We will also discuss thoracic injuries and traumatic brain injury in more detail.
Topics to be covered include:
-Rational evaluation of the trauma cat
-Hypoperfusion and shock versus dehydration
-Putting parenteral fluid therapy into practice
-Analgesia for the emergency patient
-Common thoracic injuries
-Traumatic brain injury
