About the course
If you already have an endoscope in your practice, this course will help you to optimise its use in the work-up and investigation of your small animal patients. Using endoscopy, you can reach a definitive diagnosis in many cases without resorting to exploratory surgery, thus minimising stress for the patient, the owner and yourself! If you don't have an endoscope, this course will also help you decide what to buy and which accessories you'll need. Practical handling sessions will allow you to practise using different endoscopes and accessories. At the end of the course you will be better equipped to offer an effective endoscopy option to your clients.
What you'll learn:
- Types of equipment - what should you buy?
- How to make the most of the equipment you already have
- Basic principles of endoscopic examination of thegastrointestinal, respiratory and urinary tracts
- Video presentations of normal and abnormal endoscopic findings
- Practical sessions with hands-on assistance - develop your skills
