Pain relief in the emergency patient– what should we use?
FREE Webinar – Analgesia in the Emergency Patient
Free Webinar – Ideal for Veterinary Nurses/Technicians
Dr. Philip Judge
Who is it for?
AUGUST 19, 2020
Emergency patients can require analgesia for a variety of reasons – from acute traumatic injury, to severe abdominal pain from diseases like pancreatitis or GDV among a host of other reasons. However, the presence of shock, respiratory compromise, head trauma, and other abnormalities, can profoundly affect the safety of some analgesic medications.
Join us for the FREE webinar, where we’ll examine how we can select appropriate analgesic protocols for emergency patients, how to monitor the effectiveness of your emergency analgesia, and how we can reduce the risk to our patients.
This webinar is brought to you by the upcoming Vet Education course for Veterinary Nurses, “Pain Management in Small Animal Practice” – a 3-week interactive and online course – starting August 31st, 2020!
