Vet Education Webinars
The Emergency Anaesthetic
Dr. Philip Judge
February 5, 2020
Emergency patients can require anaesthesia for a variety of reasons – from acute airway management, to emergency surgery for resolution of abdominal organ torsion or wound management, among a host of other reasons.
However, the presence of shock, respiratory compromise, pain, and electrolyte and acid-base derangements, among other abnormalities, increases the risk of anaesthetic-related mortality significantly.
Join us for the FREE webinar, where we’ll examine how we can select appropriate anaesthetic protocols for emergency patients, how to stabilise the emergency patient requiring anaesthesia, and how we can reduce the risk to our patients.
This webinar is brought to you by the upcoming Vet Education course for Vet Nurses/ Technicians, “Emergency Medicine in Small Animal Practice” – a 5-week interactive and online course – starting February 24th, 2020!
