The examination of a horse with cardiac problems does not only entail making the correct diagnosis, but horse owners will also expect the equine practitioner to be able to answer all their question regarding its likely effect on current and future performance capability, safety, life expectancy and resale ability and value. Performance of a thorough physical exam and the ability to acquire and interpret a routine echocardiogram and ECG are crucial skills for equine practitioners to provide heart assessments in horses.
This practically-oriented course is intended to help clinicians identify common equine heart diseases and will cover their impact on performance, safety and life expectancy. The 7 hours of hands-on auscultation, ECG and echocardiography wetlabs will be held in small groups and a further 2 hours will be devoted to case discussions. At the beginning of the course attendees will furthermore be provided a few cases to work through which will then be discussed at the end of the course. The expertise and extensive experience of the team of internationally renowned equine cardiologists involved with this course, along with a relaxed atmosphere will encourage open and honest discussions and stimulate attendees to assimilate knowledge.
