Anaesthetic Nursing: The Four Phases Of Veterinary Anaesthesia 19th June 2023

Central CPD

1 year ago

Date: Monday 19th June, 2023
Start time: 10:00 AM
Cost: £195

The anaesthesia period has four different phases: pre anaesthesia, induction, maintenance, and recovery, with the veterinary nurse monitoring the patient throughout. ‘Each monitoring parameter can be thought of as a piece of a puzzle, it is vital to understand the information each one is giving you, so that you can fit all the information together to obtain the bigger picture.

Not only is every patient different, but different drugs also produce different effects, and these can also vary depending on numerous other contributing factors – so no two cases will ever be the same. This one-day course is designed to provide you with the knowledge to apply critical thinking when managing any anaesthesia case and be able to piece together the anaesthesia puzzle with success, every time.

Topics to be covered include:

Pre-anaesthesia patient assessment – the importance of the pre-anaesthesia ‘TPR’ and ‘pre-op bloods’
Premedication drug selection and pharmacology – a multimodal approach to pain and sedation
Anaesthesia induction and maintenance – injectable and volatile agents pharmacology
Airway management – discussion of different airway devices, how to place them and how to prepare for a difficult airway
Cardiovascular monitoring – ECG interpretation and blood pressure monitoring
Respiratory monitoring – Capnography and pulse oximetry monitoring
Treating common anaesthetic related complications: hypothermia, bradycardia, tachycardia, hypotension, hypertension, hypoxia
The recovery period – how to prepare to recover, when to extubate and what to monitor
