The RTA Cat - for vets < 8 years qualified & nurses
Date: Wednesday 5th December 2018
By Daniel Holden BVetMed DVA DipECVAA CertSAM MRCVS
The RTA cat can be a challenging beast. Many present with no witnessed trauma and often with a history of a period of absence; the classical acute presentation is possibly less common. A rapid primary survey of the patient’s airway, breathing and circulation should be followed by a more detailed evaluation of the major body systems (respiratory, cardiovascular, neurologic) – this should be accompanied by oxygen therapy and secure vascular access, both of which may themselves present unique challenges. The dyspnoeic cat intolerant of restraint will also be encountered. This lecture will cover the essential points of feline trauma management and discuss common presenting scenarios, their diagnosis and management. As ever, audience interaction is encouraged.
