Join Drs. Soren Boysen and Serge Chalhoub as they explore the applications of POCUS to detect potential thoracic injuries and provide valuable diagnostic information beyond the physical exam.

Discover the pivotal role veterinary ultrasound plays in the assessment and management of thoracic trauma patients. In this 1-hour webinar, Drs. Boysen and Chalhoub:

  • Discusses common trauma-induced injuries affecting the respiratory system
  • Describes practical techniques for performing a focused pleural space and lung ultrasound exam
  • Utilizes POCUS to distinguish between pneumothorax and pulmonary contusions
  • Demonstrates rib ultrasound to rule out fractures

Join POCUS experts Dr. Soren Boysen and Dr. Serge Chalhoub as they teach rapid point-of-care ultrasound techniques to quickly evaluate the pleural space and lung in emergency and critical care situations.

Dog versus car usually doesn’t bode well for the dog and can result in a variety of injuries from pulmonary contusions to rib fractures. Radiographic examination may be difficult, making ultrasound a valuable diagnostic tool in the context of trauma-related respiratory distress, contributing to a timelier diagnosis for the best chance at stabilizing the patient.

In this dynamic and content-rich presentation, you’ll see helpful ultrasound image and video demonstrations of normal findings, with comparative pathological cases to fine tune your ultrasound image interpretation. This webinar empowers veterinary clinicians and technicians to enhance their diagnostic accuracy, expedite treatment decisions, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.

With over 30 POCUS research papers, book chapters and co-editors of the newest veterinary POCUS textbook “The Essentials of Veterinary Point of Care Ultrasound: Pleural Space and Lung”, award winning speakers and lecturers Drs. Boysen and Chalhoub help you take thoracic ultrasound skills to the next level.

Don’t miss this opportunity to elevate your understanding of POCUS in veterinary medicine – watch today!
