The world's largest faculty of veterinary medicine”
The most complete and up to date program in Cardiac Pathologies in Hospitalized Equine Patients on the online educational market"
This program lays the foundations for a specialization in Equine Hospital Medicine. It defines the logistics and clinical strategy required in a hospital for horses. It addresses various topics, extremely necessary in order to acquire a global idea of how an equine hospital works and to consider the hospitalization of any patient regardless of their main pathology.
It describes the layout of the different facilities and establishes the necessary guidelines for the cleaning and disinfection of different areas in relation to their degree of contamination by the patients treated in each one. Develop specialized knowledge on advanced pharmacology for hospitalized patients. This program establishes the ideal pharmacological guidelines, antibiotherapy and multimodal analgesia applicable to each patient depending on their severity, which differs greatly from the approach used in field clinics.
Due to the severity of the clinical symptoms presented by most hospitalized patients, it is necessary to establish specific guidelines for fluid therapy and nutrition according to the stabilization requirements and metabolic needs of each patient.
Finally, the interpretation of blood count, serum biochemistry and blood gas analysis are discussed as it is very important to establish the severity of hospitalized patients. These diagnostic methods will also be key to monitoring the patients during the hospitalization period.
The second part of the program delves into the recognition of cardiac pathologies, ranging from a focused clinical examination to a detailed management of the most commonly used diagnostic tests, as well as their correct interpretation. This will allow a quick assessment of horses that require emergency care. Electrocardiography, echocardiography and vascular ultrasound are essential for carrying out the definitive diagnosis.
This program contains a section dedicated to an extensive explanation of the main Cardiac Pathologies that can be found in horses that are hospitalized, in order to establish an adequate clinical relevance, as well as the main cardiac pathologies that may reappear in the hospitalized horse, mainly in critical patients, such as arrhythmias, myocarditis, pericarditis and endocarditis.
