This course aims to take a focused practical approach to the recognition of life-threatening conditions and their stabilisation in first opinion practice.

    • 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?

    • Urinary tract emergencies in cats and dogs.



Some feedback about this course...

"It exceeded my expectations! I appreciated the small group size, and that we were provided with one cadaver between two course attendees. This created an optimal and personalised learning environment."- Emergency Surgery Course- May 2018
"Paul Aldridge was both an excellent lecturer and practical teacher! He patiently answered all of our questions and regularly visited each practical table. His lectures were pitched at the right level, and he was engaging and kept both me and my colleagues' interest. His notes were also of a good standard and I will definitely refer to them in practice. I also found his videos of surgical procedures very useful." Emergency Surgery Course- May 2018
