ECHO Plus – Intermediate Small Animal Echocardiography

Course Overview: The day will be informal and relaxed with maximum time for hands-on learning. Arrive for tea and coffee from 8.30am, ready to begin the lectures at 9am. We will aim to finish by 5.30pm. Places are limited to a maximum of 8 delegates so book your place early to avoid disappointment. Course notes will be provided

Topics Covered: This full day course is for veterinary surgeons comfortable with basic echocardiography and who want to refresh basics and learn more. The day will be a mixture of interactive lectures, critical appraisal of echo images and hands-on scanning time. Delegates should be comfortable with basic right sided views, however we will cover a brief refresher and spend some time perfecting these images, then learn to use colour and spectral doppler as well as working on left sided views.

Key learning objectives

  • A refresher of basic 2D right-sided echo views and how to optimise them
  • An introduction to Doppler ultrasonography – how, when and why it used
  • How to perform the left-sided echocardiographic views
  • Make the most of your machine – get to grips with the measurements needed to make diagnoses and those we can use to assess cardiac function in more detail
  • Spotting pathological changes
  • Put it into practice – get stuck in!

Available Dates: 1st December 2023 (Ireland)
