About this course
This recorded webinar was originally part of a four week live Webinar Plus course: A multidisciplinary approach to urinary tract disorders, which is now available as a recorded Webinar Plus course. As it was part of a live course, the content of the webinar may refer to work that needed to be undertaken during the live course, such as self-assessment tasks and discussion forums or other webinars. If you are interested in this subject you may want to consider registering on the recorded Webinar Plus version Recorded Webinar Plus: A multidisciplinary approach to urinary tract disorders and access the course content along with four webinars.
In this webinar Acute kidney injury (AKI) in dogs and cats will be covered. The webinar will focus on understanding how we define AKI (hospital versus community acquired), underlying causes, making an early diagnosis of AKI and will look in depth at how we can best manage these patients in the hospital environment with facilities that are available to everyone. At the end of the webinar however, the role that renal replacement therapy (dialysis) can play in these patients with AKI and consider which patients are appropriate for dialysis and what impact this can have on their management and outcome is discussed.
A convenient and flexible way to earn some CPD hours without leaving home is to select webinars to view from our extensive library of recorded webinars. Participants will receive a handout (slides and/or notes) to support their viewing session and a certificate for 2 CPD hours.
