Burtons Academy training session

Burtons Academy

Burtons Veterinary Equipment now has a Clinical Team to complement their extensive anaesthesia product range. The Clinical Team is developing and
designing, engaging, innovative CPD on various topics of anaesthesia, focusing particularly on patient monitoring and mechanical ventilation in exotic, small
animal and large animal species.

In veterinary education, applying theory-based learning to an authentic clinical environment can be challenging, which is why we are combining the two. We believe in the need for high-quality, hands-on practical CPD that is ready to be applied immediately in clinical practice – imagine solidifying your theory learning on positive pressure ventilation by having the opportunity to apply it minutes later to a real-life, carbon dioxide-expiring canine model!

CPD Events 
In veterinary education, applying theory-based learning to an authentic clinical environment can be challenging - which is why we are combining the two together with our Capnography & Ventilation in-person practice events around the UK.

For those that want high-level personalised CPD tailored to your practice, equipment, and the specific needs of your staff, we offer Live Webinars on anaesthesia monitoring topics your team uses daily.

Clinical Director Keith

Keith Simpson BVSc MRCVS MIET - Clinical Director

Keith qualified from Bristol University Vet School in 1986 and spent 15 years in a combination of mixed and small animal practice in the Southwest. Returning to College to study an HNC in Electronics, Keith gained entry to the Institute of Incorporated Engineers in 1994 before going on to study for a Master’s in Electronics in 1997 at the University of Exeter.
Thus, having strong footholds in two disciplines that together formed the foundation of the well-known Vetronic Services, now Vetronic by Burtons. Since then, Keith has designed and manufactured over 50 unique products for the veterinary market, with a passion for ventilation and its monitoring. Keith has also produced many articles and given numerous talks over the years on all aspects of ventilation and monitoring.

Keith’s knowledge base includes the following areas:

Ventilators & Ventilation: Classification, types and modes, ventilation theory, underlying physics and physiology and clinical application.

Monitoring: Multi-parameter physics, physiology and design.Concepts and theory of capnography, pulse-oximetry, blood pressure monitoring, ECG, temperature and breath analysis. Application in aclinical setting and interpretation of the preceding, based on core concepts.
