Rank #18: Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy and Therapeutic Plasma Exchange 36

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we talk to Stefano Cortellini, lecturer in emergency and critical care here at the RVC about the process and indications for Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) and Therapeutic Plasma Exchange (TPE). Further information about this therapy can be found here http://www.rvc.ac.uk/small-animal-referrals/advanced-techniques-and-specialist-procedures/continuous-renal-replacement-therapy

Information on acute kidney injury (AKI) and grading can be found on the website of the International Renal Interest Society (IRiS) here http://www.iris-kidney.com/guidelines/grading.html

The indications for considering treating patients with AKI are; metabolic acidosis, electrolyte imbalance (especially refractory hyperkalaemia), and uraemia. The patients we see, have a potential reversible cause, are often anuric and we can successfully catheterise.  tend to be most affected are those that are anuric. Some toxins can be removed by dialysis when different filters are used. TPE has been used for immune mediated diseases (IMHA, polyradiculoneuritis), and cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy.

If you are in the UK and have a patient that you might think benefit from this therapy, then do not hesitate to contact the RVC http://www.rvc.ac.uk/small-animal-referrals/

Rank #19: Bite wounds 35

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we talk to Zoë Halfacree, senior lecturer in soft tissue surgery here at the RVC, about bite wounds and some things to consider in how to approach them, after initial patient assessment and stabilisation.

·      Analgesia; full mu opioid based upon pain score

·      Antibiotics; broad spectrum, such as potentiated amoxicillin

·      Culture where possible

·      Diagnostic imaging

·      When to explore; preferably within 4-6 hours of presentation

·      Lavage techniques; isotonic crystalloid (e.g. compound sodium lactate) using a 25ml syringe and 19-gauge needle. If you attach the fluid bag to an extension set and that to a three-way tap, with the needle and syringe, if makes it a little easier to flush.

·      Wet to dry dressing vs placing a drain
Zoë discussed these aspects of bite wound management. Although this is a relatively common problem that we encounter, there is little information in the literature to help guide us on ways to manage these challenging patients.

Enjoy!

It is that time of the year when many people are winding down for the holidays though often in our professional team the work not only continues though often gets busier.

We take a windy road in our discussion about looking after yourself and your team during this time. We also discuss an approach to euthanasia, pet bereavement and certain aspects of communication. There are certainly a few sensitive topics in this podcast, though something that all our veterinary teams have to manage daily. However, if you are struggling at this time of year, or any time of year please contact Vetlife, the Samaritans or other charity organisation helplines. We hope that you manage to have some down time during this holiday period and are looking forward to the New Year. Happy holidays, look after yourself and each other.

Anyway regardless of that we have been trying to get Associate Professor of Veterinary Dermatology Anette Loeffler into the studio for a while now, she was a little short of time though has promised to come back again next year.

107 Life after graduation - 2 years up

Podcast cover
Read more

Another year has passed by and as we close on 2019 Brian and I are joined by a previous RVC graduate Dave Beeston. We find out what Dave’s been up to in the last year and he’s certainly easier to get back into the studio. He hasn’t started his own podcast yet, though he has been on other podcasts (yes, I know, I couldn’t believe it either). We’ll see if we can continue doing this for a couple more years, we certainly need to get more podcasts out in 2020. Dave will be back writing his column in the Vet Times in the new year. We hope that you enjoy.

We’re back, thanks to the one listener who asked where we were, I would like to say on a cruise, though in reality that wasn’t the case. Anyhow we are in the studio, with Brian and joined by Aarti Kathrani one of our senior lecturers here in Internal Medicine. Aarti has a particular interest in GI diseases, so we thought that we’d ask her for her approach to manage dogs and cats with diarrhoea. Having discussed this, there are certainly more topics that we would like to ask her in the future.

Joining myself in the studio we are delighted to have Mary de Las Casas, a PDP Post Graduate Dean working for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (the UK regulatory body of the veterinary profession), talking about the PDP. A fitting time since most veterinary schools in the UK have finished their final examinations (well done) and this is the UK’s version of helping new veterinary graduates transition into their professional life and reflect on their practice. We appreciate that it is a national topic, though it does raise the question about post graduate education and where we are headed as a profession, which is applicable to all. We hope that you enjoy.

Joining Brian and myself in the studio we are delighted to have Professor Holger Volk, guru of neurology and neurosurgery, though internationally renowned for his (and his teams) work on epilepsy.   Holger spoke to Shailen in the first RVC clinical podcast and being sentimental we thought we’d ask him back for our hundredth podcast.
