This course aims to take a focused practical approach to the recognition of life-threatening conditions and their stabilisation in first opinion practice. We will look at initial assessment, diagnosis, and stabilisation of common emergency presentations using the facilities typically available.

A practical session on Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) will enable you to gain hands on experience with these life saving techniques and will highlight its value in triage of emergency patients and diagnosis of various conditions including haemoabdomens and pleural effusions.

Common pitfalls that occur in practice will also be discussed and useful tips given to help you feel more confident when treating the emergency patient!

Topics to be covered include:

  • Triage, major body system assessment, and prioritising treatment
  • Approach and stabilisation of the dyspnoeic patient
  • Fluid therapy for shock: what are we trying to achieve? How, when, and with which fluid?
  • The trauma patient: what are the primary concerns and considerations?
  • Practical session: techniques for emergency ultrasound of abdomen and thorax

*Please contact us after booking if you are unable to bring along a dog for the practical ultrasound sessions, non-dog places are limited*

Some feedback about this course...

Tom was a great vet lecturer! 
Great course, managed to fit a lot
Excellent facilities- very conveniently located for transport links- have attended several practical surgical courses run here and it’s been by far the best standard of teaching. Peter (Vet)
The best thing is they choose their tutors carefully to ensure you have really great, interesting and friendly tutors. There’s plenty of hands on experience, small class sizes and the food is amazing :) my favourite place for CPD - Miteki Degawa (Vet)
