Emergency and Critical Care
90th FVMA Annual Conference
CPR can be a frightening and unsettling experience in veterinary practice. There have been many advancements in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) over the past several years and outlined in the RECOVER guidelines. Previous veterinary CPR guidelines were adapted from human protocols, often ineffective or even wrong when dealing with veterinary patients. Fortunately, veterinarians now have more objective and research-oriented data to use when performing CPR. The Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation (RECOVER) is the first evidence-based consensus CPR guidelines for veterinary medicine. This lecture will focus on clinical, practical, CPR training and understanding.
