About this course
Do you want to increase your confidence in performing and interpreting nerve blocks for the benefit of your patients?
This course is aimed at new and recent graduates and veterinarians wanting to improve their confidence in regard to nerve blocks. After a refresher in anatomical knowledge in regard to loco-regional anaesthesia, principles of nerve blocking will be explored with specific emphasis on nerve bloc interpretation.
It is designed to give the equine practitioners who deal with lameness a better understanding of the use of loco-regional anaesthesia and its interpretation.
