This course aims to introduce basic ultrasound as a preliminary imaging tool performed by veterinary nurses in a variety of clinical situations. It will include a revision of anatomy and highlight the importance of patient preparation and positioning. The practical component of the course will cover scanning for the critical care patient, performing an AFAST® and TFAST® with an emphasis on the role of the veterinary nurse in serial monitoring for subsequent fluid scoring of cases under supervision of a Veterinarian.
