The identification of a patient with abnormal electrolytes is often associated with a diagnosis of Addison’s disease, but there are many patients who present with electrolyte abnormalities that were not expected and are not necessarily related to adrenal function! Because these abnormalities can be related to a wide range of different conditions, this course can be expected to cover a wide range of different conditions and will use case examples and a problem-orientated medicine approach to address:
· How to approach patients with abnormalities identified in their serum sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium or bicarbonate levels

· Improving delegates ability to create differential diagnosis lists for these problems and the use of problem-orientated medicine to narrow these down to reach the diagnosis

· Improving/updating delegates knowledge of the treatment of both canine and feline electrolyte disturbances

· Improving delegates confidence and ability to approach patients who are unstable or fail to respond to treatment

Who is it for?

The course will be undertaken in an as interactive a manner as possible using real-life case examples as discussion points and problem-solving exercises, so delegates need to come prepared to get involved in the discussion and bring their experience, enthusiasm and their own case stories with them – there will be no such thing as a silly question!
