Extern Daily Diary- Cardiology Day
After spending the night learning about things like Starlings Law, End Diastolic Volume, Afterload, and Preload from the LBAH web site, I felt I was ready for our cardiologist Dr. Fred Brewer to come in.

If you want to brush up on your cardiology here is the link to the page on our web site (good luck)- www.lbah.com/word/canine/heart-disease/

After working with Dr. Brewer on two cases I realized how sophisticated he is and how much there is to learn about this complex subject.

Over the next few posts I will show you the EKG's we did on our patients and the ultrasounds (echocardiograms). I just need to let my brain rest a little and absorb all of this before my next Daily Diary.

In the photo I am holding a cat named Chili while Dr. Brewer listens for a heart murmur. In the next photo one of our assistants is holding Holly while I listen to her heart.

Extern Daily Diary
Today is the start of my last week at LBAH and I am sad my externship is coming to an end. One of my favorite parts about this externship so far is the opportunity to work with so many diverse species. LBAH cares for lots of reptiles like this tortoise. Most of them are sleeping right now, so we get a break this time of year.
We have an interesting page on our web site that shows how we take bladder stones out of tortoises surgically-
www.lbah.com/word/reptile-diseases/

I have lots of homework tonight because tomorrow is Cardiology rounds with Dr. P, and he shows no mercy on this topic. Also, our cardiologist Fred Brewer will be in for two echocardiograms, so I need to be able to ask intelligent questions.

Check out them fat cheeks!

Extern Daily Diary
Today was surgical laser day- www.lbah.com/word/services/laser-surgery/

Dr. P and I started off this morning rounding on the mechanism of the surgical laser and the importance of safety. Then, he let me test my skills by writing my name on a popsicle stick (I still have a lot of practicing to do).

LBAH is one of the few practices that have a surgical laser. It is used for it tremendous advantages in minimizing pain, swelling, and inflammation after surgery.
