As a group ofSpecialists we believe that anaesthesia and pain management is best taught to vets and nurses together and so this day is designed for your whole team to attend.
Topics will range from management of the trauma case to the use of new analgesics. You will benefit from a range of experiences across the referral centres in The Specialist Division and will leave with a greater understanding of current topics in anaesthesia and analgesia.
Simplifying the complicated anaesthetic
This session will break down the anaesthetic process into simple steps. Commonly encountered problems and their solutions will be covered.
Updates in acute pain management
Providing a preventive multimodal approach is considered gold standard and considering suitable cases in which to apply these techniques will provide a greater understanding of the benefits of some simple interventions.
Local anaesthesia is my magic bullet
This session will discuss why we should be using more local anaesthetics and demonstrate just how easy it is to use locoregional techniques.
Stabilising the trauma patient
Having a plan A, B and C for the trauma patient will diffuse the stress of the patient arriving in the practice and prepare the team for all eventualities. The lecture will focus on calm management of these stressful situations.
Which monitor is best for my budget?
Understanding the functions offered by different monitors will guide you in your purchasing and ensure you get value for money.
New analgesics. Which should I be using?
Our understanding of pain processes currently exceeds our options for treatment. Novel analgesics have become available and this session will discuss cases suitable for grapiprant and what the future holds for other options.
