How can oxygen be delivered to mitochondria and drugs to target organs? Join this day webinar on cardiorespiratory monitoring to identify recent techniques and appreciate some of the challenges that come with it.

In an interactive setting, our experts will raise awareness of differences in cardiorespiratory monitoring techniques and interpretation in a variety of human and non-human species. Thereby, improving the ability of doctors, vets and researchers to undertake and interpret clinical application and translational research.

During this session, you'll be able to:

  • Affective: Appreciate the challenges of cardiorespiratory monitoring in atypical situations and/or translational research
  • Cognitive: Understand the general limitations of animal models for human cardiorespiratory research (translational models)
  • Be able to evaluate the appropriateness and potential bias of cardiorespiratory techniques employed in translational models
  • Be knowledgable about cardiorespiratory monitoring to plan research, particularly when involving translational models

A CPD certificate with 5 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.

Registration for this webinar will close 2 hours prior to the start time. You will receive the webinar link 2 hours before the meeting. Late registrations will not be accepted. 

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 30 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
