Mastering haematology: practical approach to cbc and blood smear interpretation
Are you looking at blood smears in-house? If not, do you need some convincing of why you should be? Then you're in the right place :) This course is designed for the veterinary professional who wants to stop being frustrated by blood smears and truly understand what they are seeing and what those things mean for the patient. The CBC/blood smear is a simple, inexpensive test that can pack a huge punch when it comes to making a diagnosis for the patient. But if you're not comfortable with what you're seeing, it's understandable that you may not spend much time reviewing smears. Well, that's where I come in! I'm here to help you not only feel more confident with what you're seeing but start to enjoy it and realize the utility of this tiny but mighty test!
Not only will we cover how to identify normal and abnormal cells in the blood smear, we'll take that information and correlate with the CBC data to get closer to determining the underlying pathological process happening in the patient.
