Ten Considerations of Heat Stroke
Heat Stroke has a high mortality in the patients that we treat. Prompt recognition and initiation of treatment can be life saving. There are many pathophysiological interactions and consequences for organs that can significantly affect patient outcome. This webinar will present 10 things to consider about treating these patients; including cooling, coagulation and decision making. Whether you believe in global warming or not, there is a current fashion with brachycephalic dogs across the globe who do not actually need the outside temperature to be that high to find themselves in a world of problems. If you can handle the irony of a pom discussing heat stroke to Aussies then please log on and enjoy the webinar.
