Basic Physiotherapy for Recumbent and Respiratory Patients
This 30 minute eCPD tutorial is aimed at addressing how veterinary practice continues to develop and evolve. More challenging patients will require advanced nursing and supportive care to maximise the outcomes for these patients, and to return them to their highest level of function. Early, basic physiotherapy assessment, management and intervention can improve the outcomes for these challenging cases, which can be a very rewarding experience for the veterinary nurse. By incorporating objective outcome measures into the physiotherapy plan you can evaluate treatment, and progress patient treatment goals.
- Know how, why and when to maintain joint range of motion and muscle length
- Know how to assess and treat the recumbent patient with respiratory compromise
- Evaluate treatment techniques using outcome measures
This CPD tutorial is worth 30 minutes towards your RCVS requirements.
