Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Anesthesia & Analgesia
Associate Professor of Anesthesia & Pain Management
Washington State University
In a second nurse/technician-focused IVS seminar, Dr. Grubb will cover anesthesia and analgesia with a focus on exactly what the patient needs for drugs, support, monitoring and analgesia. Although directed to technicians/nurses, the seminar will also apply to anyone wanting an anesthesia/analgesia review, including veterinarians and veterinary students. There will be time for Q & A so you can learn almost anything you want to! Join Dr. Grubb for 5-hours of RACE-approved CE!
There will be short breaks at the end of each lecture.
Take home: Which monitors and why, the importance of blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR), how to support BP, when to intervene with HR, which IV fluids/when/how much.
Take home: Which monitors and why, the importance of end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2), oxygen saturation (SpO2), when and how to breathe for the patient, how to do a recruitment maneuver, the impact of the anesthesia machine on the respiratory system and the importance of a properly functioning anesthetic machine.
Although the focus is usually on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems since changes in these systems can rapidly lead to death, there are a lot of other physiologic systems! What do we do to monitor and support those systems in the anesthetized patient.
CRIs make you CRY? Let’s make them FUN! Or at least easy?. Which drugs, which math, when to start, when to stop….. You’ve got this! And your patients will be sooo happy.
You name it, I’ll tell you my favorite protocol for it. I will start with diabetics, cesarean sections, brachycephalic patients and a few others. Then we will start going through your cases – so audience participation is a must!
