Introducing Lisa Murphy DACVECC

Lisa passed her Board exams to become a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (DACVECC) in 2017 - congratulations! She reached out to me to offer her help in producing some ECC content for Veterinary ECC Small Talk. I was grateful to accept. Please see Lisa's brief biography below.

Look out for upcoming content from Lisa, starting with a refresher on anaphylaxis. The current plan is for Lisa to write one blog per month.

I am originally from Galway, Ireland and completed my veterinary medicine degree at the University College of Dublin, Ireland.

Following that, I headed west to California for my internship and then a three-year ECC residency at the Oradell Animal Hospital in New Jersey, USA.

I became board certified in veterinary emergency and critical care in September 2017.

Major interests include cardiac emergencies, acute kidney injury and polytrauma.
