Overview

This 2019 advanced course is designed to give the practitioner a basic understanding of how to perform critical care medicine in small animals. Lectures will mainly focus on advanced fluid therapy (crystalloids, synthetic and natural colloids); management of critically ill postsurgical patients; sepsis; management of respiratory failure, blood gas and mechanical ventilation; management of renal failure; management of coagulopathies and bleeding; and cardio pulmonary resuscitation (performance of basic and advanced life support as well as post CPR care). Lectures are mainly based on clinical cases and mixed with interactive case scenarios in small groups with a maximum 10 participants. Practical work will include a wet lab in emergency procedures, which may be necessary when managing critically ill dogs and cats as well as a wet lab in CPR. Five diplomats of emergency and critical care with up to 20 years of work experience in different institutions are giving the main talks and are supported by Diplomates in internal medicine and surgery.
