Medicine for the Technician
6th Annual Gulf-Atlantic Veterinary Conference
Emergency anesthesia brings with it potential chaos and risk. The veterinary nurses monitoring these patients must be comfortable making quick decisions on pain management, blood pressure management, fluid therapy needs, respiratory support and anesthetic needs often all at the same time. This lecture will cover emergency anesthesia from a broad perspective before discussing specific cases to highlight the importance of thinking and planning ahead to make even emergency anesthesia feel routine.
