ECC-7 Course Description:
This course consists of a 50 minute review of the stabilization of the seizing patient from the emergency point of view. It will be focused on learning to use a rational thinking process in order to be more efficient for the survival of these patients. We will discuss diagnostics, monitoring techniques, and treatments options available with the goal of making clinicians, technicians or students feel more comfortable with the emergency management of these patients. Furthermore, we will show how important is to recognize and differentiate between seizures, tremors, syncopes or vestibular disease finalizing with some case scenario examples. Management of seizing patients can be very stressful, especially for owners, but this course will make those who encounter this situation feel more confident and secure when making clinical decisions about these patients.
