About this course
“There are no safe anaesthetic agents, there are no safe anaesthetic procedures. There are only safe anaesthetists.” -Robert Smith, MD
This online course is designed to instil confidence in veterinary surgeons who are tasked with responsibility for anaesthesia in equine practices. It will cover some of the key areas of equine anaesthesia including pain assessment and analgesia, commonly used routine anaesthetic protocols, monitoring and cardiovascular and respiratory support. The final sessions will consider challenging cases, such as anaesthesia for obstetric and colic cases, and anaesthesia in foals and donkeys.
The case discussions will include controversies within equine anaesthesia, and the evidence base for these. As such they will improve your reflective skills and encourage audit of your own practice, which is a critical learning area for those who are enrolled in relevant CertAVP modules.
Why do this course?
You will improve your ability to anaesthetise a horse safely and increase your confidence when dealing with challenging equine anaesthetics.
