The first of its kind anywhere, this exciting webinar series will familiarize you with a range of topics within the relatively new and rapidly-evolving field of ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia. Taught by world-renowned experts, each session will introduce you to different ultrasound-guided regional anesthetic techniques that can be used to provide anesthesia and analgesia for commonly-preformed surgical procedures in small animals. Topic areas include epidural anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks of the thoracic and pelvic limbs, and fascial plane blocks of the abdomen and thorax. Pertinent literature will be considered; however the main focus of each session will be to introduce you to these ultrasound-guided techniques and how to successfully incorporate use of these blocks into clinical practice. Through in-depth discussions of anatomy, drug selection, required equipment, what are the desired ultrasound images to obtain, and expected effects and contraindications, you will develop a working understanding of these important new techniques and how you can use these blocks to contribute to multimodal pain management and balanced anesthesia in your own small animal patients.

This series covers the following 7 topics that have conveniently been split up into  2 ½-hour weekly sessions that cover:

  • Introduction to Ultrasound-guided Regional Anesthetic Techniques
  • Stifle & Distal Pelvic Limb Surgery
  • Proximal Pelvic Limb Surgery
  • The Thoracic Limb
  • Epidural Anesthesia
  • Interfascial Plane Blocks & The Abdomen
  • The Trunk

Dr. Campoy is a Clinical Professor and Section Chief of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. A native of Spain, Dr. Campoy received his veterinary degree from Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain) in 1995. After some time in private practice, he completed an internship at the aforementioned University. Subsequently, Dr Campoy completed his residency in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care at University College Dublin (Ireland). He attained diplomate status from the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia in 2004. Dr. Campoy also holds a Certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

Research interests for Dr. Campoy are focused on locoregional anesthetic techniques for all species with a focus on dogs and horses. He has co-authored numerous peer reviewed publications on this topic as well as some of the leading texts in locoregional anesthesia.

Maja graduated from the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences in Poland in 2010. After graduation she worked for 2 years at the same university in the Surgical Department where her main focus was anaesthesia and emergency critical care.

She moved to the UK in 2012 and undertook an Internship at the University of Liverpool followed by a Residency in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia at the Royal Veterinary Collage. Maja joined DWR in 2017 and in the same year became a European Specialist.

Dr. Matt Read graduated with a DVM with distinction from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Canada in 1998. Following graduation, he completed a residency in veterinary anesthesiology and a Master of Veterinary Science. He became board-certified with the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia (ACVAA) in 2002.

Following his residency, Matt taught at the University of Georgia for two years before returning to Canada and developing and supervising the anesthesia services in two large specialty hospitals in Toronto and Calgary between 2003 and 2010. In 2010, Matt joined the University of Calgary as an Associate Professor where he taught in the DVM program and also served as Assistant Dean, Admissions.

In 2018, Matt moved to Columbus, Ohio where he is now working as an anesthesiologist and serving as Specialty Team Leader - Anesthesiology for MedVet, a family of emergency and specialty hospitals with more than 30 locations across the USA.

Matt has delivered over 100 lectures and workshops around the world and is currently preparing the second edition of a textbook, Small Animal Regional Anesthesia and Analgesia.

He dreams of someday going into space and opening an ice cream shop in the Caribbean, not necessarily in that order.
