Anaesthesia & Analgesia: Fundamentals Distance Education

The goal of every veterinarian is to provide as safe as possible anaesthesia for their patients.

 

Methodically preparing for anaesthesia minimizes unexpected and potentially catastrophic complications and improves safety of anaesthesia.

Preparing for anaesthesia entails preparing for all four phases of anaesthesia, pre-induction, induction, maintenance and recovery. The clinician has to apply knowledge and skills to make informed decisions and undertake appropriate preparatory steps for each phase.

The aim of this course is to provide participants with an opportunity for refining their knowledge in anaesthesia relevant pharmacology, physiology and pathophysiology, and for advancing their understanding of patient monitoring and managing complications, and ultimately to enable them to enhance quality and safety of anaesthesia.

Overall a good course about an often somewhat neglected subject in daily practice.

Learning Outcomes

 

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Devise a protocol, appropriate for your practice, for systematic preanaesthetic preparation aimed at minimising risk and optimising safety of anaesthesia
  • Inform on inhalation anaesthesia equipment including on use, maintenance, testing, and patient appropriate setting up
  • Rationalise the importance of perianesthetic monitoring including the choice of methods of monitoring based on understanding of respective advantages, disadvantages and limitations.
  • Competently and confidently manage common peri-anaesthetic complications through application of a systematic approach
  • Apply sound understanding of the pharmacology of drugs commonly used for sedation/pre-anaesthetic medication, induction and maintenance of anaesthesia to justify anaesthetic drug protocols 
  • Rationalise the use of analgesics for pre-emptive analgesia, multimodal analgesia, and balanced anaesthesia.
  • Integrate analgesia into the anaesthetic protocols for the surgical patient.

Modules

  1. Anaesthetic equipment - correct use, application, interpretation of inhalation anaesthetic equipment, patient monitoring equipment, management of common complications
  2. Pharmacology and application of pharmacology in practice

Anaesthesia & Analgesia: Fundamentals Distance Education

A sound understanding and knowledge of the principles and practice provide the foundation that underpins the complex process of clinical reasoning and decision making in this discipline. In this course participants will have the opportunity to enhance their clinical reasoning and decision-making skills in anaesthesia by refining their knowledge, and application of knowledge, in pharmacology, physiology and principles of clinical anaesthesia.  This course will enable participants to make sound and effective decisions when planning and executing anaesthesia, and in managing complications.

The goal of every veterinarian is to provide as safe as possible anaesthesia for their patients.
