  • Description

    Anaesthetic risk can only be fully understood once the disease pathophysiology, implications of each condition and individual patient idiosyncrasies have been considered. Using up to date studies, you will be provided with the knowledge, and confidence, to deal with the trickier anaesthetic candidates presented to first opinion practice.

    These lectures will guide you through the use and application of monitoring equipment, including blood pressure, capnography, and electrocardiography (ECG), as well as discussing the effects of common anaesthetic drugs on patients with various conditions.

    Topics to be covered:

    • Monitoring equipment and troubleshooting; knowing what is normal can help to identify problems quickly, and knowing how to fix these problems will reduce your stress levels dramatically
    • Neonatal and geriatric anaesthesia
    • Nursing British Wildlife; legislation, safety, and practical techniques
    • Common emergencies; including urethral obstructions, caesarean sections, splenectomies and gastric dilation and volvulus
