presents a

Workshop in Monitoring Veterinary Anaesthesia

Successful surgery begins with effective anaesthesia. Given our current reliance on monitoring equipment to gauge anaesthetic depth and patient status, we should have a thorough understanding of our machines. What equipment should we use for different clinical situations? How do we troubleshoot problems with our machines? How do we interpret the read outs and identify a true alarm amidst all the beeps and trills? Join Dr Colin Dunlop as he discusses the nuances of monitoring pulse oximetry, blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and capnography in the workshop in November. The workshop will comprise of lectures, demonstrations and group discussions using clinical cases.

Agenda

Given our current reliance on monitoring equipment to gauge anaesthetic depth and patient status, we should have a thorough understanding of our machines. Dr Dunlop will discuss several anaesthetic parameters that are vital for gauging patient status. He will use monitoring equipment to demonstrate various read outs – their importance and their interpretation. You will then form small groups and work through different anaesthetic case scenarios, thus putting into practice the information gained in the earlier part of the day.
