PRLog - Jan. 18, 2013 - WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- https://vetbiotech.com/webinarreg.php?id=

This interactive webinar is designed for scientists, veterinary technicians, veterinarians and technical support staff who who wish to learn osmotic mini-pump implantation techniques in rodents. This webinar is extensive enough for a novice, but also provides an excellent review for more experienced personnel. All techniques will be demonstrated by high resolution videos.

During this webinar, subcutaneous and intraperitoneal (Intra-abdominal) implantation of osmotic pumps will be discussed and demonstrated in mice and rats. The webinar will also include a review of gross anatomy and aseptic surgical technique, osmotic mini-pump technology, and basic implantation principles. The training will include the proper selection, usage, and handling of applicable surgical instruments and equipment. Emphasis will be on learning practical skills and methods from experienced instructors. By the end of this webinar, participants will be better able implement these techniques in order to plan and perform research experiments with their own rodent models.

Following topics will be demonstrated through images and videos:

Osmotic mini-pump selection and preparation
Principle of mini-pump operation
Choosing an osmotic mini-pump
Filing and priming
Animal Considerations
Preoperative preparation
Required Materials
Patient preparation
Surgical area preparation
Anesthesia and analgesia
Surgical procedures demonstrated in mice and ratsa

Subcutaneous implantationb
Intraperitoneal (Intra-abdominal) implantationc
Mini-pump explanation

Postoperative procedures and clinical monitoring and care

This webinar series meets the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS), Canadian Association for Laboratory Animal Science (CALAS), and Academy of Surgical Science (ASR) requirements for 2 Continuing Education Units. Each participant will receive 2 Certificates of Attendance.

This webinar has been approved by the AAVSB RACE program for 2 continuing education credits for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
