  • 63 Abdominal trauma in dogs

    Fri, 1 Dec 2017

    Author: Dominic Barfield

    Duration: 00:23:42

    Today we venture out of the studio and talk to both Stefano Cortellini and Karen Humm that are both heart and soul of our emergency and critical care team here at the RVC about an abdominal trauma in dogs. They have two review articles they have co-authored, the first one has been published in the current issue of In Practice. We discuss the first article and what has changed the way that they approach these trauma patients. We will get them back into the comfort of the studio next year to talk about the next review article and hopefully improve the sound quality and potentially keep the conversation more on track. 

     

    Here is the link to the article http://inpractice.bmj.com/content/39/10/434

  • 61 Pancreatic lipases

    Author: Dominic Barfield

    Duration: 00:28:26

    Back in the studio we have Jill Maddison, Professor of General Practice and has an international reputation from pharmacology to clinical problem solving. Currently the chair of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association Continuing Education Committee. We were listening to her discus how she uses pancreatic lipase tests in practice and thought it would be good to share. There might be a little sensitivity and specificity to consider though we hope that you enjoy.

  • 60 Hypoadrenocorticism treatment

    Fri, 10 Nov 2017

    Author: Dominic Barfield

    Duration: 00:40:50

    For the 60th Pod we have a treat, not one but two Professors join Brian and myself in the studio. This week we talk to Hattie Syme, Professor of internal medicine and David Church, Deputy Principal here at the RVC about treating patients with hypoadrenocorticism. The initial therapy and the transitional therapy. It is all about supplementing with mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids. Now there might be differing views on which medications to use. This all came about from a conversation with them both on the clinic floor and thought that a slight contrast in views would be good for you to hear.

     

    You could have a look at what is written about therapies prior to listening http://www.msdvetmanual.com/endocrine-system/the-adrenal-glands/hypoadrenocorticism#v3271580

  • 59 SDMA

    Fri, 3 Nov 2017

    Author: Dominic Barfield

    Duration: 00:27:38

    In this podcast, we talk to Dr Rosanne Jepson, senior lecturer in internal medicine here at the RVC about SDMA (symmetric dimethylarginine). I did not know until the end of this recording that Rosanne published on SDMA back in 2008 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18371026). What is it and how to use it. It seems that there will be lots more coming out about this in the next few years. Enjoy the pod.
