Guest Speaker: Gregory Lisciandro, DVM, Dipl. ACVECC

Dr. Gregory R. Lisciandro received his DVM degree from Cornell University, completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at The Animal Medical Center in New York City, and has become a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC) and the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (Companion Animal).

Greg, with his wife Stephanie Lisciandro, DVM, Diplomate, ACVIM, developed Abdominal FAST (AFAST3), Thoracic FAST (TFAST3), and Vet BLUE for veterinarians as rapid, point-of-care screening tests, that within minutes answer important clinical questions to help better direct both care and diagnostics in small animals. These 3 techniques require no shaving of dogs and cats, minimal restraint, and serve as screening tests for Trauma, Triage and Tracking (monitoring) - thus the T3 designation. All 3 techniques are teachable with a systematic, disciplined approach.

You will quickly become a believer using the AFAST3, TFAST3 and Vet BLUE techniques on a daily basis as extentions of your physical exam. They will allow you to capture diseases, conditions and injuries that you would have traditionally missed or had delayed. "FAST Saves LivesTM!"
