In this session, Dr. Boileau provides a clinically-relevant review of birth physiology and the challenges neonates experience, especially when they go through dystocia. She goes on to address hot topics in resuscitation including calf vigor assessment, acupuncture, caffeine, Madigan Squeeze, doxapram – to use or not to use?, and assessing passive transfer. She reviews the literature for evidence and provides a case example to demonstrate practical application of these principles. Although this presentation is geared towards calves, Dr. Boileau does mention considerations for other food animal species.
