Next Steps in Echocardiography

Sheffield

Aims

This course aims to provide you with the knowledge to achieve standard echocardiographic views in dogs including right and left side views and M mode. The common artefacts which may be confused with cardiac pathology will be covered and an overview of the changes seen in common acquired and congenital cardiac disease in the dog and cat will be illustrated. The theory of Doppler will be introduced and its application in acquired and congenital disease. Normal Doppler findings will be discussed. Changes associated with hypertension, anaemia, hyperthyroidism and other systemic disease that can cause echocardiographic changes will be covered. The course has a high practical content and there is plenty of opportunity to practise the taught techniques.

Objectives

  • The standard echocardiographic views and how to optimise them
  • The useful ultrasonographic measurements needed to make a diagnosis
  • Identifying the typical changes seen in common acquired cardiac diseases
  • Identifying the typical changes seen in common congenital cardiac diseases

Summary

Comprehensive course notes, refreshments and lunch on both days.

Please Bring a Dog

£100 voucher if you bring a dog to scan

In order to create the optimum learning environment and as the course has a large practical element, we kindly ask that delegates booking onto our Practical Ultrasound courses bring a friendly dog with them for the duration of the course.

It is important that the dogs can be clipped as appropriate for a complete ultrasound scan, and ideally have had either no breakfast or only a very light meal first thing in the morning. All our venues are dog-friendly and treats are available to give to the dogs during the scanning process.

It is preferable to have at least 1 dog between 2 delegates, therefore if you are able to bring a dog/s we will give you a £100 voucher (one voucher per person).
