About the course:

Cardiac and respiratory diseases are common in canine and feline patients. This course will give you the skills to correctly differentiate these diseases from each other (which we all know is not always as easy as it might seem), and from diseases of other body systems.

You will learn how to choose and interpret appropriate diagnostic tests and how to manage common cardiac and respiratory diseases in dogs and cats. Jacqui will help you to advise owners of possible options and outcomes and how to distinguish when the case may need to be referred.

You will be reviewing recent clinical material to promote discussion and debate.

Learning outcomes:

Students who successfully complete this course should be able to:

  • Relate the findings on cardiopulmonary examination and the results of diagnostic evaluations to the fundamental cardiorespiratory physiology and pathophysiology.
  • Correctly differentiate cardiac and respiratory disease from each other and from diseases of other body systems.
  • Competently investigate (choose and know how to interpret appropriate diagnostic tests), diagnose, and manage common cardiac and respiratory diseases in dogs and cats.
  • Advise owners of possible options and outcomes and know when to refer.
  • Retrospectively analyse and critique case management in the light of current literature.
