Cardiology V - Advanced Update to Cardiology, Novara / Italy, 28 October - 1 November 2017 held

Principal Course Master: Prof. Dr. Gerhard Wess, DACVIM, DECVIM-CA (DE)
Course master: Prof. Dr. Karsten Schober, DECVIM-CA (USA), Prof. Tony Glaus, DECVIM-CA (CH), Dr. Oriol Domenech, DECVIM-CA (IT)
Instructors: Dr. Markus Killich, DACVIM, DECVIM-CA (GE), Dr. Lisa Keller, DACVIM, DECVIM-CA (DE)


OVERVIEW

As being the last level of the ESAVS cardiology program, this advanced module presents updates of all diseases and new diagnostic and therapeutic options. It is a mixture of practicals and theoretical sessions including interactive presentations of unique ECG and Echo cases.

The first two days we will focus on echocardiography: which techniques have evolved over the last few years, what’s new concerning diagnosis of diastolic function, feline cardiomyopathies, transesophageal echo, lung ultrasound to diagnose pulmonary edema, better measurements for better diagnoses. The course masters will also present some of their coolest echo cases.

There will be also practicals on 5 echo machines in the afternoons during the first two days, where we will have a cat station, probably a 3D station, and most importantly individual coaching to help to improve your daily workflow.
Starting on day three we will give you updates on various diseases, diagnostic tests and therapeutic news, which were published the last few years. Additionally, we will continue with the ECG sessions as practicals as well as more interactive case presentations. We will also cover some non-primary cardiac topics, such as non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema, angiostrongylus, pulmonary hypertension and differentials of SAM, just to name a few topics.

We are very excited to have for the first time a module V and have recruited excellent lecturers and instructors; there will be 6 ACVIM or ECVIM Diplomates in Cardiology!
