Start time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Lectures in the morning will discuss the use of both static and dynamic endoscopy when evaluating a horse that makes a respiratory noise, with tips on how to achieve the best results out in the field. Current surgical options will then be reviewed to help delegates feel confident discussing options or referring to colleagues. The morning session will also cover the theory of an emergency tracheostomy, why and how. Medicine clinicians will discuss updates on dealing with asthma cases, infectious disease and case-based discussion around imaging the respiratory tract.
The afternoon will be practical sessions and case-based discussions, where delegates will have the opportunity to perform emergency tracheostomy on a cadaver, discuss diagnostic imaging, sampling and result interpretation, and case based discussion on diagnosis, treatment options and managing complications.
Develop the knowledge needed to choose appropriate diagnostic methods for respiratory cases, successfully perform and interpret results, and advise on suitable management.
Develop the knowledge to differentiate between various respiratory conditions, discuss current medical and surgical approaches to advise clients on the potential treatment options and prognosis.
