VETCS 7020 - Pathophysiology of Respiratory and Cardiac Surgery

Fall (offered every third year). 1.5 credits. S/U grades only.

Enrollment limited to: D.V.M. or equivalent.

J. Cheetham, R. Hackett.

Using lectures and group discussions, the objective of this course is to explain the pathophysiology of various cardiovascular diseases (cardiac arrest, cardiac arrhythmia under anesthesia) and airway disease (thoracic and upper-airway disease). As a basis for these abnormalities, cardiopulmonary hemodynamics and biomechanical aspects of ventilation are reviewed. The emphasis is placed on understanding these mechanisms and outlining the surgeon’s response to them.
