About Veterinary Clinical Cardiology
An educational site for veterinary students and practitioners
Thanks for visiting Veterinary Cardiology Online!
Why are we here?
This site is primarily intended to provide educational material for veterinary students and practitioners in the area of cardiology. The goal is to provide a resource that can serve students and practitioners at several levels. At the most basic level, you will be able to view radiographs, ultrasounds and ECG traces, and listen to heart sounds in order to gain an appreciation for both normal and specific disease conditions. Building on this will be the introduction of case material allowing you the opportunity to integrate the basic concepts into specific cases. In addition, a concepts section and glossary will be available and linked to relevant material whenever possible.
The best way to view this site...
Please note that the pages in this site are designed for the following monitor settings:
If the images appear poor in quality or grainy it is likely that your monitor is not set to show 24 bit colour. In Windows 95/98/2000, you can change the settings of your monitor by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing "Settings" under the Properties menu. If you are unsure of this procedure you should consult your computer's documentation.
Why we can't answer specific questions about your animal
Sometimes we get mail from people with specific questions about their animal. While it would be great to offer advice and opinions about individual cases, it is inappropriate to do this without first seeing the animal and obtaining a complete medical history.
Who's behind all this?
This site is an ongoing project of Drs. Mike O'Grady, Jeff Holmes, and M. Lynne O'Sullivan. We hope you enjoy using the site and find it a useful resource. Much of the site is supported by generous corporate sponsorship. Please feel free to contact either of us with questions or comments about the site.
