Participant Feedback

When asked what aspects of the course liked best some responses were:

...Very informative

...Very informative and thorough. She is very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. I felt it was moving a little to quickly to retain the information or take notes. Would like to be able to print off power points or notes to be able to follow more thoroughly.

... It was very thorough, really like the speaker as well :-) Great value for money! Thanks for the info


Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: Recognizing and Preventing In-House Cardiopulmonary Arrest utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

This course discusses how to recognize impending cardiopulmonary arrest, what to do if a patient arrests in-house, and how to continue supportive care in the post cardiopulmonary arrest patient.

At the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • recognize subtle changes in vital signs associated with impending arrest and quickly intervene
  • explain how to choose safer anesthetic protocols for high-risk patients
  • discuss administration of CPR on in-house cardiopulmonary arrest patients
  • recognize return of spontaneous circulation
  • explain the components of adequate support to the post-arrest patient
