Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Anesthesia & Analgesia
Associate Professor of Anesthesia & Pain Management
Washington State University
In a first-ever technician-focused IVS seminar, Dr. Grubb will cover anesthesia and analgesia information, tips and updates. Although directed to technicians/nurses, the seminar will also apply to anyone wanting an anesthesia/analgesia review, including veterinarians and veterinary students.
What is the truth and what is myth regarding the anesthesia/analgesia drugs that we commonly use in practice? We will briefly review the good and bad effects – and the proper dosages – of anesthetic/analgesic drugs so that they are used appropriately and safely. (PS – Zoletil is Telazol in UK/Europe).
Anesthesia can be very dangerous for some patients, but we can improve anesthetic safety by knowing which patients are at greater risk – and what human factors put patients at risk.
Pain management is critical to anesthetic safety, and to patient health and quality of life. We will discuss pain, pain management and how the nurse/technician can play a very large role. YOU CAN DO IT!
We will discuss easy to implement pain assessment tools and pain management techniques that the nurses/technicians can/should be doing. Videos included!
