Recorded Date: January 16, 2024
Who: Veterinarians and veterinary technicians in British Columbia and beyond!
What: A free RACE-approved CE event (1 hour CE certificate)
Topic: ECG Interpretation for Veterinary Technicians & Veterinarians
Veterinarians are welcome to join to get “back to basics” as well as run through case examples that demonstrate a general strategy for interpreting simple and complex arrhythmias.
Learning Objectives:
  1. The ECG trace is an indication of the electrical conduction through the heart.
  2. By “interrogating” the ECG in a stepwise manner, you can identify arrhythmias.
  3. Treatment should be considered if cardiac output is affected, or there is potential for life-threatening arrhythmia.
  4. Cardiac disease is not the only cause of arrhythmia
Good Reasons to Watch:
  • Meet our veterinary outreach representative, Michelle Floris
  • Successfully answer a quiz to earn a 1 hour CE certificate from BBVSH

About the Presenter

Jennifer grew up in Kamloops BC with a love of science and animals. After finishing her undergraduate education at the University of Victoria on Vancouver Island, she attended the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Medicine in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she got the opportunity to travel and work all over the UK throughout her schooling. Returning home to Canada, Jennifer practiced as an ER veterinarian in Vancouver for several years before returning to her true love, cardiology. After several additional internships both in Canada and the US, Jennifer is ecstatic to be able to complete her cardiology residency here at BBVSH and return home to beautiful British Columbia.

Outside of work and study, Jennifer can be found hiking with her 2 dogs, Odie and Bueller, or otherwise enjoying the outdoors on her bike or kayak.
