About the course

Are you confident in your approach to equine anaesthesia in a hospital setting? How can you refine your approach to critical care? Would you like to enhance or update your armoury of anaesthetic protocols? Are you happy that you have perfected your regimes for fluid therapy and pain management? Would you like to perfect your techniques under the watchful guidance of anaesthetic specialists?

This interactive two day workshop is aimed at practitioners, particularly interns and residents, who perform anaesthesia routine and emergency procedures in a hospital based environment. Delegates will be given the opportunity to learn and gain practical experience under the guidance of recognised specialists in a relaxed informal environment. Delegates are encouraged to bring queries or examples of clinical cases for discussion.

The course will focus on the considerations and complications of general anaesthesia  in a hospital or clinic based environment, along with critical care of the pre and post-operative patient. Half a day is dedicated to actually performing anaesthesia, allowing delegates to be involved with putting into practice a number of different protocols. In addition to interactive case-based lectures and discussions there will also be small group practical teaching sessions.

This workshop is suitable for all delegates working in equine practice, although some degree of practical anaesthetic experience is assumed, and for those studying to achieve an RCVS CertAVP. Numbers are limited on this highly practical course so early booking is advised.
