Frustrated with your level of anesthetic monitoring expertise? Want to know more than simply the “How-to”? This course will set you on your way to continued proficiency in all aspects of anesthesia for the dog and cat. “Anesthesia for Cats and Dogs: Pre-op to Recovery” will offer an overview of basic anesthesia and monitoring practices supported by lecture and instructions on in-depth anesthesia concepts. A focus of the lecture will be identifying the “normal” for patients under anesthesia and “What-if” scenarios for anesthetic abnormalities. PE, analysis of pre-op lab values, ASA planning/anesthetic plan development, anesthetic agents, induction, monitoring, and recovery are areas to be covered. Pathophysiology of body systems affected by the process of anesthesia will be discussed. Hands-on wet lab for anesthetic machine set-up, patient monitoring devices, and patient intubation with cadavers will complete the class.
