Trauma in dogs and cats can cause a range of potentially serious conditions, from obvious injuries, such as fractures, open wounds, and external haemorrhage, to serious head trauma, internal haemorrhage, and life-threatening injuries of the chest cavity. This 4-week course will approach the trauma patient from the standpoint of emergency management. From respiratory tract trauma to management of open fractures, and a lot in-between, we’ll present the very latest in management strategies, to give your trauma patient the best chance of survival.
What's in the Course?
Traumatic wounds come in all shapes and sizes. From bite wounds, to degloving injuries and open fractures, we will review not only the physiology of wound healing, but also the latest recommendations in wound management – from acute care, the managing the wound through the various stages of wound healing.
Catastrophic haemorrhage is an occasional consequence of trauma – and this topic will review not only what happens in acute haemorrhage, but how to manage haemorrhage as well. In particular, we’ll focus on management strategies for controlling and minimizing the impact of uncontrolled haemorrhage into the thoracic cavity, abdominal cavity, and fracture sites. Finally, we’ll conclude the course with an overview of the pharmacology of the trauma patient – including analgesic techniques, and rational antibiotic choices among others.
