This lecture will provide participants with a strong foundation in the principles of small animal transfusion medicine including: blood type systems, donor selection, pre-transfusion diagnostics, product collection, component therapy, transfusion administration, and recognition and treatment of transfusion reactions. Due to the increased interest and availability of in-house diagnostics and blood products in private practice, the role of the veterinary technician in transfusion medicine will be stressed.
The presentation, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia will be discussed. Special focus will be on the role of the veterinary technician in these cases and the importance of owner education in the successful treatment of this disease.
Speaker: Sarah Puchalski, DVM / Puchalski Equine Diagnostic Imaging
Diagnostic imaging is a critical component of sport horse medicine, for the diagnosis of performance problems (lameness or poor performance) in addition to the pre-purchase scenario. Understanding the underlying etiopathogenesis (when possible) and potential downstream effects of any given lesion aids in the interpretation of its relevance, now or in the future. Diagnostic imaging should always be interpreted with the clinical examination information and performance history when possible. This lecture will primarily review radiographic findings with additional imaging to illustrate these points.
