COURSE BUNDLE

Anaesthesia Essentials to Advanced Course Bundle

Learn how to effectively manage anaesthesia in sick or compromised patients with this ultimate anaesthesia course bundle consisting of 2 exciting courses!

This course includes:

What you'll learn

This 4-week online course is designed to provide you with the knowledge you need to help effectively and safely manage anaesthesia in your patients. We’ll cover setting up your anaesthetic machine and circuits, selecting appropriate anaesthetic machine settings for your patient, and the pharmacology of common anaesthetic and sedative medications. What’s more, we’ll also talk about how to reduce anaesthetic risk in your patients, and will complete the course with a discussion on anaesthetic monitoring, and the management of common anaesthetic problems, such as hypotension, hypothermia, arousal during anaesthesia and much more!

Week 1: Preparing for the Anaesthetic

This week is all about being prepared - preparing our anaesthetic drugs, our anaesthetic machine, and the equipment we need for intubation. It’s also about being prepared for unexpected complications - including apnoea, hypotension, and cardio-pulmonary arrest - focusing on equipment, medications and support techniques that will help out patient if things go wrong!

Week 2: Preparing your Patient for Anaesthesia

This week covers important aspects of patient assessment, identification of potential anaesthetic risk factors, and adjusting our anaesthetic protocol to minimise risk to the patient. We’ll review how to identify and correct important patient risk factors too - so your patients have the best chance of surviving their anaesthetic.

Week 3: Anaesthetic and Sedative Drugs

This week is all about the medications we commonly use to both induce and maintain anaesthesia, with a view to being able to more effectively monitor, predict patient response, and intervene if necessary, to help maintain safe anaesthesia.

Week 4: The Anaesthetic

This week covers the essentials of patient monitoring - from simple anaesthetic depth monitoring, to blood pressure, capnography, body temperature and cardiac rhythm - as well as what to do when you encounter an abnormality!

Course Outline:

This special 3-week short course is designed to help veterinary nurses and technicians safely and effectively manage anaesthesia in sick or compromised patients. You will cover how to minimise patient risk factors prior to – and during anaesthesia, how to respond to abnormal patient parameters, and how to manage anaesthesia in patients with specific diseases – including heart failure, respiratory diseases (including brachycephalics), kidney disease, GDV and much more!

This is a fully-featured Vet Education online course, including 3 comprehensive live tutorials, extensive course notes and references, Q and A message boards and a special assessment task – all designed to give you the best preparation for your next complicated anaesthetic!

Week 1: Risk Reduction in the Compromised Patient

This week covers preparation of anaesthesia for the sick or compromised patient, and includes patient assessment, identification and correction of anaesthetic risk factors, and how to adjust the anaesthetic protocol to minimise risk to the patient - with the ultimate goal of optimising anaesthetic success.

Week 2: Management of Anaesthetic Complications

This week will focus on emergency management of anaesthetic compilations, including abnormalities of cardiac rhythm, hypotension and hypertension, abnormal respiration, inappropriate anaesthetic depth, and cardiopulmonary arrest - with the goal of equipping you with the skills to successfully manage these challenging conditions in a timely manner.

Week 3: Anaesthesia in Specific Disease Conditions

This week will focus on specific anaesthetic requirements for patients with specific requirements, including patients with respiratory disease (including BOAS), cardiac disease, severe metabolic disease, sepsis, trauma, neurological disease, kidney disease and more. We’ll also outline approaches to anaesthesia of paediatric and geriatric patients as well!

Learning Outcomes:

At the conclusion of this course, the participant will have a sound knowledge of the following:

  • The principles and practice of risk reduction in the compromised anaesthetic patient, including patient assessment, manipulation of anaesthetic technique, and pre-anaesthetic therapies aimed at risk reduction
  • The diagnosis and emergency stabilisation of a wide range of anaesthetic implications, including respiratory, cardiac, cardiopulmonary arrest, hypertension, hypotension and inappropriate anaesthetic depth
  • The specific pre- intra-and post-anaesthetic requirements for patients with respiratory disease, cardiac disease, kidney disease, neurological disease, sepsis, trauma and geriatric or paediatric conditions
