Cardiopulmonary arrest can occur due to severe systemic disease or as a result of anaesthesia or sedation in small animal veterinary patients. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation gives these patients a chance of survival but the proportion of patients surviving cardiac arrest and leaving the hospital is sadly low. The RECOVER initiative in 2012 led to the production of evidence-based veterinary specific guidelines as to the best way to manage these patients. This webinar will provide practitioners with the key points, focusing on measures that can be taken in a practice setting to save lives.

Members of the BVA Young Vets Network receive a 50% discount on our recorded webinars (subject to availability – ten discounted places available per webinar per year).
