Small Animal Anaesthesia – How to prevent it all going wrong (and what to do if it does)

Veterinary Nurse Day Meeting

Course Date and Venue:

Thursday 14th September 2017, Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld

Lecture Summary:

Much of the responsibility for safe conduct of anaesthesia in small animal practice falls to Veterinary Nurses.

Unfortunately, however, anaesthetic-related complications are relatively common, and anaesthetic mortality rates significantly higher, when compared to humans.

This course will help VNs recognise and deal with those issues contributing to anaesthetic morbidity and mortality in dogs and cats, and should help make anaesthesia less stressful for all involved.

Key areas that will be covered will include:

*Factors contributing to small animal anaesthetic mortality.

*How to plan cases to ensure anaesthetic complications are minimised

*Recognising what your monitoring equipment is (and isn’t) telling you.

*Common anaesthetic problems and how to deal with them.

*How to recognise imminent arrest

*How to perform effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
