A Case-Based Approach To Feline Anaesthesia
Date: Monday 4th December, 2023
Start time: 10:00 AM
Feline anaesthesia is a daily part of veterinary practice, with the risk of complications and death reported to be greater in cats than dogs. Despite this, the focus of anaesthetic training is often on the management of dogs and the assumption that the same approach can be applied in feline patients. However, the fundamental differences between these two species and their common comorbidities mean that this is not the case.
This day aims to revise the cornerstone principles of anaesthesia and monitoring, with a focus on elements specific to our feline patients. First opinion case examples will be used to generate discussion on the approaches to anaesthetic management of feline patients with specific, significant comorbidities including cardiac disease, renal disease and concurrent trauma.
Topics to be covered include:
An overview of feline anaesthetic risk and principles of management in cats.
A review of monitoring during anaesthesia, including basic ECG interpretation and capnography
Case-based discussions on anaesthetic management for feline patients with the most common comorbidities seen in practice including;
Chronic renal disease
