About the Event
Dr. Virginia (Gini) Frauenthal was raised in San Clemente, CA. She received her undergraduate degree in Vocal Performance from UC Davis in 2005 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University in 2009. Dr. Frauenthal then continued her education with a rotating internship at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic and Referral Centre, the largest private practice in Canada located in downtown Toronto. She then gained experience as an emergency veterinarian at VCA West Coast before completing a 3-year residency program in emergency and critical care in 2015. Dr. Frauenthal's professional interests include toxicology, traumatology, electrolyte and acid/base disorders, management of patients with Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome and Sepsis/Septic Shock. In 2017, she published the only article detailing the recognition and treatment of serious injuries secondary to coyote attack in dogs.
At this lecture, Dr. Frauenthal will teach attendees about Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) based on the RECOVER guidelines. She will discuss Basic and Advanced Life Support in detail, post resuscitative care and explain ischemia/reperfusion injury as the most common reason why patients re-arrest. The goal of this lecture is to get veterinarians and their care team comfortable with modern CPR techniques and understanding the why behind these practices are the most effective at saving lives.
