About this course

Do you need an anesthesia refresher or are you looking to learn and understand more in-depth anesthesia and analgesia knowledge?

This online course is aimed at qualified veterinary nurses who want to refresh their knowledge and investigate some of the recent advances in anesthesia and analgesia. It could also be suitable for student veterinary nurses who have regular clinical anesthesia exposure, who have completed the anesthesia modules in their training programme and are now keen to develop this area of their clinical work. The course will provide a theoretical and practical approach to the realities of anesthesia and analgesia in practice with some added extras!

We aim to refresh the basics as well as offer some advanced knowledge in order for nurses to take something back to their place of work to improve the anesthesia and analgesia experience for their patients.

You will receive more in-depth information regarding anesthesia equipment – how to devise patient-specific plans for anesthesia and analgesia, what our monitors are telling us and what to do if something goes wrong!
