VTMED 6551 - Topics in Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Medicine

Spring. 1 credit.

Enrollment limited to: third- and fourth-year veterinary students; for all others, permission of instructor. Minimum enrollment 20.

D. Fletcher.

This course builds upon the foundation built in Block V. It will consist of a combination of lecture and case discussion sections. Although all of the discussions will center on small animal medicine, the same principles often apply to both small animal and large animal situations. Topics that MIGHT be covered include a selection from the following list:shock, trauma, stabilization, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, respiratory emergencies, cardiac emergencies, endocrine emergencies, acute renal failure, hematologic emergencies, transfusion medicine, respiratory monitoring, hemodynamic monitoring, acute abdomen, emergency surgical procedures, and sepsis. The class will focus on both emergency stabilization and management of critically ill patients.
