This course is aimed at equine clinicians with a good working knowledge of equine cardiology and is ideal for vets who have previously attended our course on Practical Cardiology for Equine Practitioners. The team of internationally renowned equine cardiologists will be covering the following topics through well-illustrated lectures, video demonstrations and case discussions in English (with German moderation):

Advanced Echocardiographic Assessment of Left-Sided Valvular Regurgitation
Segmental Approach to the Evaluation of Congenital Cardiac Disease
The Many Facets of Myocardial Disease in Horses

Practical Application of Speckle Tracking (Evaluation of Myocardial Strain)
4D Echocardiography – Equine Applications
Management of Atrial Fibrillation
Mapping & Ablation of Atrial Arrhythmias
Right Heart Function – Practical Applications
The 10 hours of echocardiography in small groups (max. 5 attendees per instructor), ECG wetlabs and interactive case-discussions will provide ample opportunities for attending vets to further develop their practical skills on live horses under the watchful eyes of the experts. Each attendee will be rotating through the following stations

Echocardiography Stations 1 – 6 (= 6 hours)
Exercising ECGs on live horses
Interpretation of Exercising ECGs
Echocardiography Measurement Station
Heart Murmurs & Arrhythmias Case-based Discussions
The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).
