Overview

This practical one day workshop will give you confidence to bring echo skills to your practice. 

 

The course focuses on the equipment and techniques needed to reliably obtain key echo views; and, importantly, how to interpret them to best help your cardiac patients.

 

Numbers are strictly limited to ensure plenty of individual coaching from Jacqui. Attendees will benefit from Massey Vet School's new teaching facilities and amenable dogs, along with a large 'hands-on' component.

Try out a variety of ultrasound machines/probes and learn which would be best for your practice.
