Small Animal Emergency Medicine – A 2‐Day Practical Course
This two-day practical course is designed to provide small animal clinicians with up to date essential theory, and practical skills, to confidently manage a multitude of common medical emergencies seen in practice. The course starts by using real life clinical cases to discuss the diagnosis and management of common medical emergencies. The 5 ½ hours of ‘hands-on’ practical session on the second day will enable delegates to practice the following essential emergency medical techniques on cadavers in a relaxed learning environment: Placement of central venous catheters, oesophagostomy tube placement: surgical cut-down and van Noort techniques, thoracostomy tube placement (large bore trocar and small-bore wire-guided techniques), peritoneal dialysis, bone marrow aspiration and core biopsy. These sessions will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to develop skills, which are otherwise rarely offered.
