About the Course

This Northern Ireland Regional Meeting will focus on the use of regional anaesthesia in lameness examinations and for diagnostic and surgical procedures. Lecture material will give an update on diagnostic anaesthesia techniques and their interpretation in lameness examinations, and an overview of useful regional anaesthesia techniques for surgical procedures. 

During a practical session, using cadaver material participants will have the opportunity to practice and refine these techniques. In addition, some case examples illustrating the use of regional anaesthesia will be presented.
