London. SE17 3BN
The aim of this course is to cover the principles surrounding sedation and anaesthetic management of the sick and unstable patients that regularly present in general practice.
Clinicians can often be hesitant to use anaesthesia or sedation in clinically unstable patients or in patients with chronic medical conditions due to the higher risk involved.
This course aims to give delegates the tools to safely and effectively use sedation and anaesthesia in patients with endocrine, neurological and cardiac conditions as well as in emergency situations including sepsis and polytrauma.
Topics to be covered include:
- How the pathophysiology of disease affects drug choice and anaesthetic management
- Developing confidence in management of the more challenging, acute emergency patient
- Anaesthetic considerations for BOAS patients and patients with cardiac, endocrine or neurological disease
- Anaesthetic management of the pregnant bitch and neonates
