Practical keys to the neurological examination
Wednesday 13 November 2019
Jurys Inn, Gloucester Road, Cheltenham GL51 0TS

Lecture 1: Neurological Emergency
When faced with a patient that seems to have neurological problems owners are often understandably anxious creating a sense of panic and emergency. Many of these patients will benefit from initial triaging and stabilisation in some situations. In determining a genuine emergency it is vital to obtain a detailed history and accurate repeated assessment of the patient. This evening provides a practical overview of the most frequently presented cases which may be considered as emergencies but may benefit from an initial collaboration between the referring practice and the referral institution.
Lecture 2: Sudden Onset Weakness
Flaccid nonambulatory tetraparesis or tetraplegia is an infrequent neurological presentation, but is characteristic of neuromuscular disease (LMN disease), rather than spinal cord disease. This presentation will discuss the anatomy of the neuromuscular system, the common presentation of peripheral nerve or neuromuscular junction disease and the three major diseases causing acute flaccid tetraparesis in dogs and cats (idiopathic polyradiculoneuritis, botulism and acquired acute fulminating myasthenia gravis).
