Severe illness in dogs and cats can result from many disease conditions, including trauma, inflammatory diseases such as pancreatitis, severe infection, immune-mediated disease to name just a few. This 4-week course will focus on the end-result of these severe illnesses – the development of systemic inflammation, and the organ dysfunction and failure that frequently transpires. Along the way, we will uncover specific management strategies used to reduce the severity of systemic inflammation, as well as develop specific plans to manage the complications of severe illness when they occur. You will also receive practice protocols, useful algorithms for disease management, and great summaries of the enormous amount of literature published on this topic as well!
What's in the Course?
One of the common sequela to severe inflammatory or infectious disease, is the development of organ dysfunction and failure. From acute kidney failure, to cardiac arrhythmias and severe blood pressure anomalies; neurological dysfunction to gastrointestinal failure, we’ll discuss management strategies to support organ function during the most critical phase of patient illness. We’ll also cover the diagnosis and management of acute respiratory distress syndrome as well!
Critical care of the critical patient involves having a specific approach to the patient – including supporting the gastrointestinal tract, nutritional needs, providing physical support and more. Additionally, prudent and specific choices must be made regarding medications too. This topic will cover all of these things, along with providing a daily check-list for your patients, to ensure nothing is missed!
