Anaesthesia is something we do every day in general practice. But it is a potentially lethal procedure! So, how can we make our anaesthesia safe? This 5-week interactive course will provide you with essential tools to make your patient anaesthesia as safe and effective as possible. We will discuss anaesthetic drugs, safe administration, anaesthetic circuit selection, essential anaesthetic monitoring, and what to do in case of the emergency anaesthetic!
What's in the Course?
This topic covers a plan for identification of anaesthetic risk factors in canine and feline patients and outlines specific therapeutic modalities for the correction or reduction in anaesthetic risk, for disorders of the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, urinary and neurological system. You will also receive client history forms, anaesthetic risk assessment charts and many more great resources for your practice!
This topic covers monitoring of the anaesthetic patient – from basic measurement of physical parameters to instrumentation and interpretation of pulse oximetry, end-tidal carbon dioxide concentration, blood pressure and urine output. Additionally, a review of anaesthetic depth and how this relates to physiological responsiveness of the patient is also detailed.
Anaesthetic complications vary from temporary periods of apnoea following anaesthetic induction, through to life-threatening disorders of circulation, respiratory function and anaesthetic death. This topic explores the causes of the most common anaesthetic emergencies, and presents a logical algorithm for solving each detected problem.
This topic covers an approach to problem identification and anaesthetic management of patients with specific diseases, including respiratory diseases, cardiac disease, caesarean section, kidney failure, liver disease and much more!
