Equine Respiratory Tract Investigation &Therapy

Continuing Veterinary Education

1 Day practical training course:
Topic:Equine Respiratory Investigation and Therapy:
Venue: Fethard Equine Hospital, Fethard, Co Tipperary, Ireland
Date: 3-10-2015

Respiratory problems are amongst the most frequently encountered conditions in competition horse practice and diagnosing a specific disease can at times be challenging.  This 1-day practical course is suitable for veterinarians from mixed and equine practice who are keen to update their knowledge and especially the practical skills on how to work-up and treat horses with respiratory conditions.  A panel of internationally renowned specialists will be presenting the following highly-illustrated lectures in English in the morning:  
  • Structure and Clinical Examination of the Equine Upper Respiratory Tract
  • Conditions of the Nasal Passages, Pharynx & Larynx
  • The Sinuses & Guttural Pouches
  • Diagnostics of Lower Respiratory Tract Conditions
  • Conditions of the Lower Respiratory Tract & Thorax
Open and frank discussions are encouraged and the speakers will share their personal experiences, successes and failures with attendees.

In the afternoon4 hours of practical sessions will give delegates plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and cadaver specimens and to ask questions in small groups (2 – 4 delegates per endoscope), all under the supervision of the specialists. The following practical sessions will be covered during the course: 
  • Overground endoscopy demonstration on  a racehorse  
  • Thoracic ultrasound
  • Endoscopy of the upper & lower respiratory tract (incl. bronchoalveolar lavage & tracheal wash techniques)      
  • Sinus & guttural pouch lavage techniques
The course fee includes lunch at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Delegates can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available

Onemytis Air Plasma Surgical unit heralds New Dawn for Veterinary Practitioners

Onemytis Air Plasma Surgical Units are set to revolutionise Veterinary Surgery.

Basic explanation of the Technology:
Airplasma® is based on a simple idea: transforming air into an ideal conductor through the generation of high-voltage pulses using a high frequency sinusoidal oscillator.
 The energy flow,with a mean dissipation temperature of 50°C, allows immediate tissue vaporisation, which ensures capillary haemostasis  in a precise and controlled fashion with minimum  tissue trauma .
A substantial difference compared to conventional electrosurgery, which alternates or combines cutting mode (with temperatures of over 100°C) and fulguration, with voltage peaks of 5,000 volts. 
In addition, 
Airplasma®completely does away with the need to use external inert gas sources (argon or helium)
and closed circuits with return plates, such as those used in APC technology, thereby avoiding
the involvement of sensitive organs and the generation of heat inside the patient’s body.

Onemytis in Action.

There are many Youtube videos available describing  Onemytis surgical procedures  but I think the more compelling images are available on the following facebook page.

Precision,speed and opsite cleanliness enable the surgeon to operate in a much improved environment while at the same time reducing patient trauma and  recovery time.

Contact the following if you would like to promote"The Cleancut" image for your practise and we will arrange demonstrations and training.
