An Evidence-based Approach To Balanced Anaesthesia In Small Animals


The evidence supporting a balanced or multi-modal approach to anaesthesia in veterinary and human medicine is solid. But when it comes to everyday cases, where do we start? This webinar will piece together the information available in the veterinary literature supporting strategies that contribute to a balanced approach. Protocols, dose rates and techniques for the use of epidural anaesthesia, local blocks, and common constant rate infusions will be discussed, as well as suggestions on case selection for individual strategies.

Lactate In The Critical Patient – Where Are We Now?


Blood lactate measurements in the emergency and critical patient can tell us a lot about our patients – from global perfusion status, to aiding in determining the success of our resuscitation efforts. But is there more? We’ll review the latest literature on the value of blood and body-cavity lactate measurements, and how they can assist us in decision-making for our patients.
