Emergency cases can be stressful, especially in a busy first opinion practice where it is difficult to deal with cases that often require intensive nursing and treatment. This course of eight videos will present an overview of the common emergencies encountered in first opinion practice using case-based discussions to further your knowledge and understanding of the physiology, causes, treatment, complications, and management of these challenging and rewarding cases.

The collapsed patient: triage, primary assessment, monitoring and investigation
Acute renal failure: chronic vs acute onset, ruling out pre/post-renal, acute on chronic, causes of ARF, monitoring and management
Diabetic ketoacidosis: physiology, causes, diagnosis, insulin protocols, monitoring, long term management and client education
Anaemia/IMHA: accurate history taking, examination, diagnosis, treatment and management of IMHA and infectious, toxic, congenital and haemorrhagic causes of anaemia. As well as identifying primary and secondary coagulopathies and treatment options
The parvo puppy: physiology, diagnosis, rates of infection and transmission, treatment, nutritional support and owner education and future prevention
