PANEL DISCUSSION DESCRIPTION

Although colic surgery is one of the most commonly performed emergency surgeries, the post-operative management of routine and complicated cases continues to present challenges to clinicians worldwide.  Join our international panel of world-renowned colic surgeons to learn how they manage horses in the post-operative period following colic surgery.  This interactive and lively discussion will focus on routine patient monitoring, intravenous fluid therapy, pain control, antimicrobial use, and incisional management.  The panelists will furthermore debate on ways to prevent and treat common complications like incisional infections and post-operative colic.  Additionally, the topics of how to approach who should manage post-operative cases in larger referral hospitals and how to keep costs down for post-operative care will be discussed.

If you wish to receive a Certificate of Attendance after having viewed the webinar, please get in touch with us and we will send it to you electronically.
