people iconWho is the course for?

The course is suitable for equine practitioners wishing to enhance their ability to categorise cardiac murmurs and common rhythm disturbances in the horse.

book iconAbout the Course

Please note that this is a blended course, with delegates required to attend the live pre-course webinar on 31 May. This webinar will introduce the online material you are expected to use to prepare for the practical day. In your own time, you can review this material to cover underpinning knowledge on how to characterise murmurs and identify specific cardiac pathologies, ECG techniques and principles of interpretation and cardiac pathophysiology. There will also be case-based examples to work through covering common cardiac conditions and challenges such as how to assess murmurs in colic, poor performance and foals. On 22 June you will attend the practical day where you will examine horses with cardiac problems and gain some insight on how to approach electrocardiography and management of common dysrhythmias. At the end of the course delegates will be given cases to prepare in their own time and discuss at a post-course webinar. In effect creating the whole learning cycle that can be used to populate your CPD reflections.
