This course is aimed at equine clinicians with a good working knowledge of equine cardiology and is ideal for vets who have previously attended our course on Practical Cardiology for Equine Practitioners. The team of internationally renowned equine cardiologists will be covering the following topics through well-illustrated lectures, video demonstrations and case discussions in English (with German moderation):

Advanced Echocardiographic Assessment of Left-Sided Valvular Regurgitation
Segmental Approach to the Evaluation of Congenital Cardiac Disease
Common Echocardiographic Pitfalls
Atrial and Ventricular Arrhythmias – Diagnosis and Treatment
Evaluation of Atrial & Ventricular Function with Tissue Doppler Imaging
Practical Application of Speckle Tracking (Evaluation of Myocardial Strain)
Exercising ECG & Continuous ECG Monitoring in the Sport Horse
Management of Atrial Fibrillation & Atrial Tachycardia
Equine Asthma, Pulmonary Hypertension & Evaluation of Right Heart Function
Endocarditis and Pericarditis
Heart Murmurs & Arrhythmias Case-based Discussions
The 8 hours of echocardiography in small groups (max. 5 attendees per instructor), ECG wetlabs and interactive case-discussions will provide ample opportunities for attending vets to further develop their practical skills on live horses under the watchful eyes of the experts. Each attendee will be rotating through the following stations

Echocardiography Stations 1 – 5 (= 5 hours)
Acquisition & Interpretation of Exercising ECGs on live Horses
Tissue Doppler Imaging Case-Discussions
The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions). Early course registration is recommended as there are only limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.
