Improve International has introduced new courses for veterinary surgeons interested in cardiac medicine, dentistry and arthroscopy. The cardiac medicine courses will be led by Luca Ferasin, a European and RCVS Recognised Specialist in Veterinary Cardiology. A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias (20 September 2018) will support delegates in developing an analytical approach to electrocardiogram (ECG) trace interpretation and help them to identify bradycardias and narrow and wide complex tachycardias and to select appropriate management options.

Cardiac Emergencies in Small Animal Practice (21 September 2018) will equip delegates to select the latest techniques to diagnose and manage cardiac emergencies. It will cover the theory and practical application of point-of-care ultrasonographic techniques for diagnosis of pleural effusion, pulmonary oedema, pericardial effusion and ascites.

The first of two new courses at the Sheffield facility is a two-day Feline Dentistry course (17 to 18 July 2018) led by Bob Partridge, a Recognised European and RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Dentistry. The course will help delegates to develop dental radiographic skills and identify and manage cases of periodontal disease, tooth resorption,
chronic gingivostomatitis, oro-facial pain syndrome, oral tumours and facial trauma.

The other Sheffield course, a two-day Arthroscopy course led by Nick MacDonald, will take place 4 to 5 September 2018. The course will equip delegates with the practical skills they need to add arthroscopy to their diagnostic and therapeutic armoury.
