In this episode of the VetECC podcast, I interview Liz Hughston MEd., RVT, CVT, VTS (SAIM, ECC) about her role as a mentor and practice consultant, as well as differences between practice in the USA and the UK. Look forward to an hour of shop talk, laughs, and stories about our experiences in veterinary medicine, as well as some critical evaluation of how our behaviour can affect practice. 

Hello friends, we are back with episode two of the foundations series. This time we are talking about approaching the dyspneic patient and what to do in the first five minutes.

Thank you for listening to our very first Emergency and Critical Care Education podcast. We were graced with the presence of Dr Andrew Foster, resident in anaesthesia and analgesia at the Royal Veterinary College. We discuss the various tools in our arsenal for managing pain and to provide sedation in the veterinary emergency room. An associated article and other resources can be found at: http://vetemerge.cc/podcast/episode-1-sedation-and-analgesia-in-the-veterinary-emergency-room
