Lecture 1: Anesthesia/Analgesia for Patients with Comorbidities & the Impact of COVID Mandates
Now that most clinics are essential only, our caseloads have shifted to a higher percentage of patients with comorbidities. We are also striving more for ‘one stop shopping’, decreasing the need for the owners to make repeat visits to the clinic. Thus, we are sedating/anesthetizing more patients at the first visit, yet many of these patients are not healthy. What should we be concerned about? What are the best anesthetic/analgesic protocols? What can we do without and still do safe anesthesia?
