Liza W. Rudolph, BAS, CVT, VTS (CP-Canine/Feline, SAIM) of Saint Francis Veterinary Center will be giving a lecture on the Principles of Transfusion Medicine for Veterinary Technicians on Thursday, May 22, 2014 at the Brio Tuscan Grill Town Place at Garden State Park (901 Haddonfield Rd, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002).
The lecture will provide participants with a strong foundation in the principles of small animal transfusion medicine including: blood type systems, donor selection, pre-transfusion diagnostics, product collection, component therapy, transfusion administration, and recognition and treatment of transfusion reactions. Due to the increased interest and availability of in-house diagnostics and blood products in private practice, the role of the veterinary technician in transfusion medicine will be stressed.
