Description

Course Summary

This 40 minute eCPD tutorial discusses respiratory physiotherapy, which is perhaps the least understood and therefore the least utilised treatment in veterinary patients. By carrying out a respiratory assessment, reviewing chest radiographs and blood gases you can plan physiotherapy treatment and manage patients with pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma, hypoxaemia and other conditions seen in veterinary patients.  Using simple objective outcome measures relating to the assessment findings will allow you to evaluate and progress your treatment in this group of often critical and complex patients.
