Body Cavity Effusions: Clues to Pathogenesis - WebinarPLUS
Avian consults can be difficult and often present as an emergency because owners do not understand normal bird behaviour nor recognise key symptoms that might indicate an important underlying problem.
In this course you will review and update your knowledge of -
Avian anatomy, physiology and husbandry
Handling and examination techniques and the collection of diagnostic samples
Emergency procedures and housing
Interpreting avian biochemistry and making the most of other in-house pathology
Special requirements of avian radiography
Common problems and syndromes
The course will review when and which medication and/or surgical procedures may be necessary, once a diagnosis has been reached. Avian cases may often seem complex at first glance. This course aims to give you the knowledge and skills to approach them with confidence and give your patients the maximum chance of a successful outcome.
By successfully completing this course, you will:
- Have a sound diagnostic approach to fluid analysis of body cavity effusions
- Have a sound diagnostic approach to preparation and assessment of cytology of body cavity effusions
