As in previous years we are organizing different labs at EVECC Congress 2020 where you can learn the skills of emergency procedures and critical care from well-known specialists. There is a limited number of attendees for each lab so please register fast to reserve your spot in your preferred lab.

Please note that the disposabels for all labs are made possible by the generous support of:

 


Thursday June 4th - Basic cardiovascular POCUS Lab        

Tutors: Maxime Cambournac
Time: 09:30 - 13:00 (incl. breakes, 3,5 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Wetlab
Lab fee: Early fee € 123,97 (€ 150,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 165,29 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT)

The wetlab will focus on the correct technique and the normal findings on an abbreviated echocardiography for emergencies, as well as the evaluation of the caudal vena cava. The delegates will train in small groups at different stations under direct supervision of the lab instructor or assistant on healthy owner dogs. Emphasis will be placed on the correct technique as well as recognition of normal structures and obtaining correct views to assess left atrial size, left ventricular contractility, right ventricular size, and to assess volume status using cardiac as well as caudal vena cava views.

 


Thursday June 4th - Basic abdominal and thoracic POCUS Lab

Tutors: Bert-Jan Reezigt 
Time: 14:00 - 17:30 (incl. breakes, 3 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Wetlab
Lab fee: Early fee € 123,97 (€ 150,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 165,29 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT)

The wetlab will focus on the correct technique and the normal findings on abdominal, pleural and pulmonary pocus. The delegates will train in small groups at different stations under direct supervision of the lab instructor or assistant on healthy owner dogs. Emphasis will be placed on the correct technique as well as recognition of normal findings at the level of the abdomen, pleural space and lungs using a goal directed approach.

Friday June 5th - Recover CPR Rescuer Certification - BLS and ALS Lab

Tutor: Julie Menard
Time: 08.00 - 17.00 (incl. breaks, 6.5 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Drylab
Lab fee: Early fee € 206,61 (€ 250,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 247,93 (€ 300,00 incl. VAT)
Prerequisite: Completion of the online RECOVER BLS and ALS at recoverinitiative.org is required to attend this workshop!!!

How do we best treat animals in cardiopulmonary arrest? An evidence-based veterinary CPR guideline published by the RECOVER Initiative in 2012 aimed at determining how to maximize the chances of patient survival led to the official veterinary CPR certification process approved by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. This course will equip participants with concepts and techniques in Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS) reinforced through scenario-based simulations.

 


Friday June 5th - POCUS Procedures Lab

Tutor: Angela Briganti & René Dörfelt
Time: 09.00 - 13.00 (incl. break, 3.5 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: T.B.C.
Lab fee: Early fee € 165,29 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 206,61 (€ 250,00 incl. VAT)

The wetlab will be organized off site. This wetlab will focus on the use of pocus to guide procedures in an ICU setting. The delegates will train in small groups at different stations under direct supervision of the lab instructor or assistant on cadavers as well as on artificial models. Procedures that will be trained are centesis, vascular access techniques, neuromuscular blocks as well as nasoesophageal tube placement. 

Please note that this lab will take place at the Veterinary campus Ledeganck at Ghent University. 

 


Friday June 5th - Advanced pleural space, lung and cardiovascular POCUS Lab

Tutors: Soren Boysen
Time: 14.15 - 17.30 (incl. breaks & plenary session, 3.0 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Wetlab
Lab fee: Early fee € 165,29 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 206,61 (€ 250,00 incl. VAT)

The wetlab will be organized off site. This wetlab will focus on identifying abnormalities on abdominal, pleural and pulmonary pocus. The delegates will train in small groups at different stations under direct supervision of the lab instructor or assistant on cadavers. Emphasis will be placed on the recognition and identification of abnormal findings at the level of the abdomen, pleural space and lungs using a goal directed approach.

Please note that this lab will take place at the Veterinary campus Ledeganck at Ghent University. 

 


Saturday June 6th - Blood gas, Electrolytes and Acid base Workshop

Tutors: Sabrina Hoehne & Simon Hagley
Time: 08.10 - 10.40 and 14.15 - 16.00 (incl. break, 3.0 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20

Lab fee: Early fee € 123,97 (€ 150,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 165,29 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT)

In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn a systematic approach to the interpretation of venous and arterial blood gas analysis, acid-base disorders, and electrolyte abnormalities commonly encountered in the critically ill patient. An introductory lecture will review how acid-base homeostasis is maintained in the body. The principles of arterial blood gas analysis will be also discussed, introducing measures to evaluate oxygenation such as A-a gradient and PaO2/FiO2 relationships. In the second part of the lab, attendees will work through case-based examples of electrolyte and acid-base disorders, assess patient oxygenation, develop patient treatment plans, and get feedback from the instructors.
