About the course
Critical Care – Part 2 by Louise O’Dwyer. Cardiac patients can present with a number of disorders and their nursing care will involve monitoring numerous parameters using both hands on techniques, as well as different equipment. ECG interpretation is a must for any veterinary nurse, and we will focus on common arrhythmias we see in emergency and critical care. The cardiac patient, including common diseases and brief pathophysiology will be discussed. Finally, we will discuss the ongoing nursing care of these patients, and the rationale for some of the treatments that may be chosen.
