Approach to the Sick Diabetic

This is the Third Course in the Emergency and Critical Care Program!
 
ECC-3: This course consists of a 50 minute review of the small animal diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) patient. It will be focused on the most efficient diagnostics, monitoring techniques, and treatments available with the goal of maximizing the survival of these patients. We will discuss important pathophysiological concepts, but the main goal is to help clinicians improve the outcome of these patients who present with this emergency condition. Furthermore, we will discuss how important it is to recognize when to refer or when to treat in situations when limited facilities may be available. Management of DKA patients can be very stressful, but this course will make those who encounter this disease feel more confident and secure when making clinical decisions about these patients.

SDMA Clinical Utility in Small Animal Medicine

SDMA is a widely available commercial test that has revolutionized how we detect kidney disease in small animal veterinary medicine.  Despite SDMA’s success in measuring/estimating a decreased GFR, we must remain diligent in our practices to appropriately use this biomarker in regards to our patients’ healthcare. During this course we will discuss the origin, science and literature available in regards to the veterinary use of SDMA, then we will discuss several clinical cases in which SDMA values may or may not have helped in achieving an accurate diagnosis.

AVOID CAT'TASTROPHE: Updates on Anesthesia & Analgesia for Cats

Cats present some unique anesthetic & analgesic challenges and are at higher risk than dogs for anesthesia-related mortality. Small body size, fight/flight tendencies and species-specific responses to drugs can complicate feline anesthesia and analgesia. Addressing specific cat concerns can make anesthesia safer and analgesia more effective. Cat-specific anesthetic and pain management drugs and techniques, along with updates on feline-specific literature and new drugs are covered in this 95 minute On-Demand course.

Proper Planning and Execution in Oncologic Surgery

Proper planning optimizes success in oncologic surgery, while inadequate planning can result in recurrence of a tumor more aggressive than the original. We will discuss selection and prioritization of steps involved in working up an oncology patient (including staging and grading), the decision process for when to take incisional vs. excisional biopsies, guidelines for achieving margins on common tumor types like mast cell tumors and soft tissue sarcomas, and steps to minimize tumor seeding.
