CE Credits: 1

General Veterinary Technician Session: The second step, after taking a history, to evaluating any patient is the physical examination, and perhaps no other body system lends itself to leaving clues of abnormality than the cardiovascular system. The astute veterinary technician can uncover many physical examination findings to lead them to a correct assessment of heart disease, which may be important in the emergency situation. The presentation will cover those physical examination findings that particularly point to the cardiovascular system, including heart murmurs and heart sounds.
