Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) December 30, 2012

The Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI),, is proud to announce the topics for the January 2013 live webinar schedule.

On January 2th, 2013 at 1:30pm EST will be the Fundamentals of Rodent Surgery webinar, presented by Drs Szczepan Baran and Marcel Perret-Gentil. This webinar covers rodent surgery regulations, guidelines, requirements and definitions, aseptic technique, surgical preparation, instrument selection and handling, suture use and selection, magnification, ergonomics, tissue handling and dissection, and body wall and skin closure.

“VBI’s webinar series is incredibly popular and very well received,” states Dr. Elizabeth Johnson, CEO of the Veterinary Bioscience Institute. “We are constantly complimented that our educational material is delivered in an unbiased way and promotes best practices from around the globe. I am so proud of the exceptional scientists that contribute to VBI’s amazing educational portfolio of materials, and in 2013, we are increasing our webinar offerings by almost 100%, which means that we will be having webinars almost every week of 2013.”

Here are a few testimonials from attendees: “I really enjoyed the webinar and it is helpful for many of us that aren't able to travel or get away from work to be able to learn from other professionals and keep up to date on new techniques and items that might save time and give better results. Also, help improve patient care.” “The webinar provided novel ideas on how to improve our surgical practice.” “This was an excellent overview of the different considerations in rodent surgery.”

On January 9th, 2013 at 1:30pm EST will be the Do's and don'ts of rodent peri-operative care and assessment webinar. This webinar will cover post-operative care of adult and neonate rodents, rodents with and without implanted devices, post-operative pain and distress assessment techniques, management of post-operative pain and distress, health assessment, effects of hypothermia, strategies to prevent hypothermia, heat support equipment review, post-surgical enrichment, post-operative antibiotic use and infection control, addressing expected and unexpected post-surgical complications, post-operative nutritional and fluid support, implementation of humane endpoints and record keeping

On January 16rd, 2013 at 1:30pm EST will be the Aseptic and Precise Surgical Technique in Rodents webinar, presented by Drs Marcel Perret-Gentil and Szczepan Baran. This webinar will cover current regulations related to rodent surgery, pertinent human and veterinary literature, rodent aseptic practices, precise and gentle surgical technique, competency assessment of rodent aseptic technique, guidance to rodent surgeons to formulate informed decisions regarding aseptic, appropriate tissue handling and gentle technique to maximize good surgical outcomes, improve research data, and ensure animal welfare.

“Aseptic and precise surgical techniques are essential components of a surgical surgery. In spite of this, not all aspects of aseptic and delicate technique are often considered when planning for rodent surgery, and it can lead to questionable outcomes,” states Dr. Szczepan Baran. “There is still a misconception that rodents are less susceptible to infections, and this webinar will set the record straight.”

On January 23rd, 2013 at 1:30pm EST will be the Osmotic Pump Implantation in Rodents (Part 1) webinar and on January 30th Osmotic Pump Implantation in Rodents (Part 2). Both webinars will be presented by Drs Szczepan Baran and Marcel Perret-Gentil. These webinars will cover subcutaneous and intraperitoneal (Intra-abdominal) implantation of osmotic pumps and will be demonstrated in mice and rats. These webinars 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 placed on learning practical skills and methods from experienced instructors. By the end of these webinars, participants will be better able implement these techniques in order to plan and perform research experiments with their own rodent models.
