Course description

Challenges in Respiratory Medicine and Surgery

Day one, Medicine. The day starts with a series of lectures covering common, and some less frequently encountered, medical respiratory presentations seen in first opinion practice, incorporating recent developments and evidence based medicine to enable you to make the best decisions for your patients. Topics covered include strangles and its sequelae, equine asthma including how to deal with difficult and nonresponsive cases and pleural disease. After lunch participants will split into small groups, and rotate through practical stations under the close supervision of specialists, where you will have the opportunity to practice live thoracic ultrasound, BAL and trans-tracheal wash sampling techniques, and endoscopy of the futtural pouches on cadavers.

Day Two Surgery: Day two will focus on the more surgical based challenges of equine respiratory disease including the approach to a case of nasal discharge, sinusitis, epistaxis and dyspnoea, followed by a series of lectures exploring the approach to and surgical management of laryngeal, pharyngeal and guttural pouch disorders. An afternoon anatomy refresher practical will allow practitioners to familiarise themselves with the complex anatomy of the equine paranasal sinuses and larynx, as well as the opportunity to learn laryngeal ultrasound techniques and tracheotomy tube placement for dyspnoeic patients.
