VetPD Practical Cardiology for Equine Practitioners

25 May 2018 08:20 - 26 May 2018 18:00

When confronted with horses affected by cardiac abnormalities many equine practitioners are intimidated and shy away from a cardiologic work-up. This practically-oriented course is intended to help general equine practitioners identify common equine heart diseases and their impact on performance, safety and life expectancy. Attendees will learn how to perform a thorough physical exam of the cardiovascular system and will be taught how to acquire and interpret a routine echocardiogram and ECG, crucial skills for equine practitioners to provide heart assessments in horses. The expertise and extensive experience of the team of internationally renowned equine cardiologists, along with a relaxed atmosphere will encourage open and honest discussions and stimulate attendees to assimilate knowledge.

The 7 hours of hands-on auscultation, ECG and echocardiography wetlabs will be held in small groups and a further 2 hours will be devoted to case discussions. At the beginning of the course attendees will furthermore be provided a few cases to work through which will then be discussed at the end of the course.
