The progression in knowledge in feline cardiorespiratory medicine over the last decades has been absolutely breathtaking.
Echocardiography has become more complex (and affordable), new blood tests have appeared, and new drugs have become available. As a result however, keeping up with the advances in feline cardiology is challenging.
This course encompasses the new developments and translates the scientific advances into clinical useful applicable information. More specifically, this course will guide you through the initial approach to cardiac disease in cats and review common feline cardiac problems that you will encounter in everyday practice. The backbones of every module will be case-based material supplemented with appropriate literature and video cases where required.
By successfully completing this course, you will:
Learn which subtle (often missed) hints to look for in the physical exam of cardiac cases.
Gain an understanding of how common presentation such as dyspnoea, acute posterior paralysis, murmur, and syncope appear using across key diagnostic aids, and therefore, which aid to use when!
Review the latest findings on feline cardiomyopathies, their diagnosis and treatment.
Develop an approach to the investigation of common feline arrhythmias, congenital heart disease and systemic hypertension
Clinical evaluation and decision-making of cats with cardiovascular disease
Common diagnostic modalities
Feline cardiomyopathies: diagnosis and treatment
Approach to common feline arrhythmias, congenital heart disease and systemic hypertension
This course includes:
Written notes, photographs, videos and case studies
Self-assessed multiple choice quizzes to test your knowledge and understanding
A discussion forum for conversation, debate and information exchange with your peers and tutors
An electronic certificate available for download upon successful completion of the course
