This one-day workshop will provide you with an understanding of the common systems derangements in emergency and critically ill patients, and how to appropriately manage them.

Many people dread the phone call signalling the arrival of a hit-by-car animal. After attending this course, you will feel a lot more confident in your approach to these patients, and less like hiding under the desk!

The cadaver practical session will cover the placement of urinary catheters, central venous catheters, tracheostomy tubes, oesophagostomy feeding tubes and thoracic drains. Not only will these procedures be demonstrated, but you will have a chance to practice them yourself, working in groups of no more than three participants per cadaver.
