August 26, 2013: Common mistakes to avoid in the ER (2 hrs)
In this VETgirl online veterinary CE webinar, Dr. Justine A. Lee, DACVECC, DABT and Dr. Garret Pachtinger, VMD, DACVECC review common mistakes to avoid in the veterinary ER. Don’t see emergency cases every day? Have a dog presenting to you with pale mucous membranes, a weak pulse, a heart rate of 190 bpm, and you’re not sure what to do next? Have a dyspneic cat fish-mouth breathing in front of you? This 2-hour webinar will tell you how to avoid 10 common mistakes in your emergency patients, including when to tap that dyspneic cat’s chest, when to reach for that “FAST” ultrasound, or the best time to do chest radiographs. Having practiced in the trenches of a busy inner-city emergency room to the ivory tower of academia, we’ve seen these mistakes made, and have made them ourselves!
