Laboratory of Veterinary Emergency Medicine

Veterinary emergency medicine focuses on knowledge and skills to stabilize patient’s condition as much as possible in case of emergency prior to the ultimate treatment of diseases in animals. Students are able to learn professional knowledge of first-aid as well as possible practical treatments for animals in acute diseases or injuries through the veterinary emergency medicine course, and further develop the ability to apply them in critical patient care. Although recent clinical veterinary medicine focuses on specific organs and diseases, the development of emergency veterinary medicine for immediate and efficient treatment of animal patients who cannot communicate unlike human, are indispensable. Main research areas are cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in critical patients, internal/surgical treatment for animal heart disease, minimally invasive/interventional treatment for emergency patients, organ transplantation for patients with multiple organ damage, and Traditional Veterinary Medicine for emergency diseases.
