The Veterinary Medical Forum is designed to enhance informal communications between practitioners and NC State CVM faculty on issues pertinent to medicine and surgery. During these informal discussions, we will share current management ideas, procedures and techniques which we hope will be applicable to your practice. We invite you to bring your questions and/or cases (including radiographs) relative to the topics below.
Recognizing and Treating Life-Threatening Arrhythmias
Sandy Tou, DVM, DACVIM (Small Animal and Cardiology)
In this lecture, Dr. Tou will discuss how to read and interpret ECG rhythm strips for the most common life-threatening tachyarrhythmias and bradyarrhythmias seen in clinical practice: atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, atrioventricular block and ventricular tachycardia. Attendees will also learn indications for treatment and current treatment recommendations for each arrhythmia.
Check-in: 12:00 PM – 12:15 PM
Lecture: 12:15 PM – 1:30 PM
WHAT TO BRING: YOURSELF and cases on the topic, if desired.
LUNCH: Feel free to bring your lunch with you, or you can purchase one from the recently updated Vet School Cafe.
This seminar will offer one (1) hour of NCVMB approved CVME for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
If you are a person with a disability and desire any assistive devices, services, or other accommodations to participate in the activity, please contact Dane Johnston to discuss your needs at least 30 days prior to the event.
An electronic copy of the lecture notes will be made available a few days before the course. In order to read the notes, you will need Adobe® Reader®. Download a free copy here.
Attendees who register at least one day prior to each forum and provide an e-mail address will have a parking pass issued to them via e-mail which will permit parking in the CVM Deck. If you do not receive the parking pass via e-mail, allow yourself time to pick one up from the reception desk in the front lobby. You may continue to park without a permit in the Fairgrounds parking lot at the corner of Blue Ridge and Trinity, or at Carter-Finley Stadium. There is a bus that runs from Carter-Finley to the CVM every 15 minutes. The CVM parking deck requires a permit. Also, cars parked in the hospital client lots will be ticketed. Directions and a map can be found below.
