Practical guide to the use and interpretation of nerve and joint blocks
About this course
This course is aimed at describing how to best perform nerve and joint blocks in the equine patient and how to interpret them. In the recent years, it has been realised that some nerve blocks may diffuse further than expected therefore this presentation will aim at describing the best way to perform the block and how to interpret them as reliably as possible. It is designed to give the practitioners who deal with horses the confidence to use and interpret nerve and joint blocks.
The key areas that will be covered by the lecture are how to perform nerve and joint blocks and to describe how to interpret them.
