The Ortho Exam and How to Get a Diagnosis Quickly
- SPEAKER: David Dycus, DVM, MS, CCRP, DACVS-SA
- TIME: 9:15 AM
- ROOM: Room 8
Orthopedic ailments occur frequently in both our young and old patients. The good news is a differential diagnosis list can be developed quickly based on the age of the patient, and the limb affected. However, physically examining our patients is needed to guide the direction for additional diagnostics and treatment. This lecture will focus on how to perform a thorough orthopedic examination quickly. We will explore an examination of the front limb and hind limb paying particular attention for commonly missed signs and problems. The goal is to be able to complete the examination in under 5 minutes and have a great idea of what could possibly be wrong.
The Dental Procedure Day: From the Exam Room to the Dental Table
- SPEAKER: Denise Rollings, CVT, VTS (Dentistry)
- TIME: 10:45 AM
- ROOM: Room 10
The complete dental procedure, from the pre-anesthetic exam to the discharge, is explained. This lecture covers what one needs to do before putting an animal under anesthesia for a dental procedure. This includes a physical exam, blood work, consent forms, anesthetic protocols, and pain management before the procedure is started. Once our patient is under anesthesia, we must know and understand positioning, monitoring, basic instruments, and the steps of a dental procedure from induction to recovery, to the patient walking out the door. Key points are: client education, communication, anesthetic monitoring, and performing/writing appropriate discharge instructions. Attendees will learn how to present all of the information so that clients can understand the value of high-quality dental care and be more compliant.
