The Clinical Diagnostics stream will continue its work at NVC 2020. This time the sessions will focus on the clinical examination, the most basic skill for each doctor. It is not a secret that this form of obtaining patient information, alongside with the medical history, is an indispensable part of any patient's visit. Mistakes and negligence of this diagnostic technique can result in disruption of the whole diagnosis and treatment plan. Our goal is to demonstrate how the general physical examination and special types of examination are performed and to provide clear algorithms, from manifestation of clinical findings to their diagnostic significance. We want everyone to be able to easily fight the diseases of their patients, using these techniques.

Dear friends,
We invite you to make coffee, get comfortable on the couch and learn the video lessons with us.

Manipulations with catheters, tubes, needles constitute a huge part of our work. They are daily routine. Every day we make dozens of mistakes, preparing for the procedure, installing catheters, caring for them.

We invite you to learn how to carry out the manipulations correctly. Together we will review the most common tube types and discuss consumables, the installation technique, pitfalls, complications and mistakes, tips and secrets.

You will need 5 cups of coffee.

  • Cup 1 - tubes and vessels (central and peripheral venous catheters).
  • Cup 2 - tubes and the gastrointestinal tract (nasogastric tube, esophagostomy tube, gastric intubation and lavage).
  • Cup 3 - tubes and the respiratory system (intubation, breathing with the Ambu bag, nasopharyngeal catheter).
  • Cup 4 - tubes and the urinary system (catheterization of the urinary bladder of female and male cats and dogs).
  • Cup 5 - tubes and needles (thoracocentesis, abdomenocentesis, thoracic drainage).

Each unit consists of:

  • the lecture part (indications and contraindications, required tools and consumables, the installation technique essentials, care, complications, frequently asked questions);
