Emergency Management of Thermal Burns and Smoke Inhalation
Thermal burn injury and smoke inhalation in dogs and cats may occur independently or simultaneously but both can be life threatening conditions. This lecture will discuss the acute management and emergency stabilisation of these conditions. Patients with thermal burn injury often require prolonged hospitalisation and long term management - we will discuss long term considerations and anticipated complications.
