11-03-2022 Crucial Procedures Lecture


EASAV presents a lecture and wet lab for vets & RVTs

Crucial Procedures for the Emergency Veterinary Team
AbVMA, SVMA & CVBC-approved: Lecture:1.5  CE credits; Lab: 3 CE credits

Speaker: Marie Holowaychuk DVM, DACVECC, CYT

Seminar Abstract: With veterinary emergency caseloads higher than ever before, long wait times or closed hospitals require that general practice teams handle emergency cases. This increased responsibility for stabilizing and caring for emergent or critical patients requires knowledge and understanding of certain procedures such as stabilizing patients with shock, gastric dilation volvulus (GDV), or respiratory distress and managing patients with feeding tubes. 

During the lecture portion of this session, videos and commentary will be used to demonstrate techniques most commonly used in the ER setting, such as intraosseous catheter placement, pericardiocentesis, thoracocentesis, chest tube placement, orogastric intubation, gastric trocarization, as well as nasal and esophagostomy feeding tube placement. These procedures, as well as venous cutdown, will also be demonstrated and practiced during the laboratory cadaver portion of this session. Veterinarians and RVTs are encouraged to attend and will gain confidence to prepare for or perform these tasks in the general or emergency practice setting.
