Emergency and Critical Care
90th FVMA Annual Conference
Anesthesia, especially in debilitated patients, can be scary. In this lecture, we will review the approach to sedation and anesthesia protocols, and how to minimize anesthetic complications. We will discuss important topics such as anesthesia in the critically ill patient, the prevention of aspiration pneumonia or esophagitis, and appropriate use of monitoring devices to improve the safety of anesthesia.
