RECOVER Initiative Lecture and Dry Lab: A Technicians Guide to Recent CPR Guidelines
Speaker: Jordin Tillison, LVT, VTS (ECC)
Veterinary Technicians Only - Limited to 20 Participants - Fee: $40
This topic will cover the recent RECOVER Initiative guidelines from a perspective that is easy to understand for the general practice and emergency and critical care technician. A step-by-step approach to what the guidelines mean to technicians in every-day practice and how they can easily be implemented in their hospital. Creating a team approach to the CPR guidelines, and how each technician can play a role with the CPR patient. Preparing your hospital to be compatible with recent guidelines will be lectured on. Following the lecture, we will practice chest compression technique, manual ventilation, and run through CPR case examples.
Subjective & Objective Evaluation of Equine Lameness
Speakers: Drs. Carrie Jacobs and Laurie Tyrell
Veterinarians Only - Limited to 15 Participants - Fee: $75
This laboratory will focus on the principles of both subjective lameness evaluation and the use of inertial sensors in field-based objective lameness measurement as an adjunct to the equine lameness evaluation process. Participants will have the opportunity to observe, evaluate and discuss several live equine lameness cases, using both subjective and objective methods on the straight line, lunging, flexions and following diagnostic blocks. A ridden evaluation may also be included pending appropriate lame horse and rider availability. Emphasis will be given to subjective evaluation techniques, caveats and pitfalls of subjective evaluation, how to interpret objective measurements and the associated biomechanics (what is being measured and how) and comparing the data to the subjective assessment. Equinosis inertial sensor equipment will be used for objective measurement.
