Improve International has launched two one-day cardiac courses, led by Dr Luca Ferasin DVM PhD Cert VC PGCert (HE) Dip ECVIM-CA (Cardiology) MRCVS, a European and RCVS Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology.

According to the blurb, A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias will support delegates in developing an analytical approach to electrocardiogram (ECG) trace interpretation and help them to identify bradycardias, narrow and wide complex tachycardias and to select appropriate management options. The course takes place on Thursday 20th September 2018.

Cardiac Emergencies in Small Animal Practice will equip delegates to select the latest techniques to diagnose and manage commonly presented cardiac emergencies. They will learn the theory and practical application of point-of-care ultrasonographic techniques for diagnosis of pleural effusion, pulmonary oedema, pericardial effusion and ascites. They will also develop Centesis techniques and improve their knowledge of Acute Heart Failure. The course takes place on Friday 21 September 2018.

Juliet Pope from Improve said: "Emergency cardiac care is an area of growing importance to first opinion practitioners. These two courses have been carefully designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest techniques and management approaches which delegates will be able to utilise immediately in practice."
