About this course

Patients with respiratory disease may present to the veterinary clinic with severe respiratory distress. These patients can be extremely fragile and difficult to manage. This topic covers a step by step approach to these patients. The topic covers various ways of providing supplemental oxygen as well as the best ways to assess patients in respiratory distress using physical examination parameters and bed-side diagnostic testing. Also covered is stabilisation techniques for common causes of respiratory distress. 

This recorded webinar was originally part of a four week live Webinar Plus course: Fundamentals of emergency medicine part 1, which is now available as a recorded Webinar Plus course.  As it was part of a live course, the content of the webinar may refer to work that needed to be undertaken during the live course, such as self-assessment tasks and discussion forums or other webinars.  If you are interested in this subject you may want to consider registering on the recorded Webinar Plus version Recorded Webinar Plus: Fundamentals of emergency medicine part 1 and access the course content along with four webinars.
