About the Event

Join Chloe Fay Chloe Fay BSc (Hons) RVN CertVN ECC NCert (Anaesthesia) VTS ECC BLS & ALS RECOVER Instructor  in this fantastic immersive day, having fun, mooching round the zoo and eating fantastic food!

This full day of interactive lectures will look at how to perform high risk anaesthesia in canine and

feline patients. Discussion of the pharmacology of drugs and how to select the appropriate

anaesthetic plan will be the main focus of the day, with cases presented to the participants to help

put all the puzzle pieces together. This course aims to provide all the skills to feel confident with

dealing with all anaesthetics, in particular the higher ASA grades. Discussion of various high-risk

procedures/ disease states, including how to identify problems and remedy the situation will be

addressed, as well as any preventative measures that can be taken.

Lecture One: Maximising your multiparameter and utilising low flow

Monitoring anaesthetised patients is crucial to the success of the anaesthesia. Common

abnormalities such as cardiac arrhythmias, hyper and hypocapnia and the actions needed to address

these changes, or waveform presentations will form the main basis of this lecture. This lecture will

also talk about the use of low flow anaesthesia in conjunction with these monitoring tools, to

maximise efficiency and reduce environmental impact of anaesthetics.

Lecture Two: Anaesthetic risks- focus on hypothermia and hypotension

Many anaesthetic deaths can be attributed to errors, many of which are avoidable. This lecture will

look at some of the common reasons for these errors and how to reduce or correct them, especially

in regards to hypothermia and hypotension.

Lecture Three: Paediatric, geriatric and gestating considerations

Paediatric and geriatric patients carry their own risks with regards to anaesthesia, many of which

need new anaesthetic plans. This lecture will also touch on the complications associated with

caesarean sections, especially in regards to adequate analgesia prior to surgery.

Lecture Four: Anaesthesia for the cardio-respiratory patient

This lecture will look at the pathophysiology of cardio-respiratory disease and the anaesthetic

considerations for these patients, including the use of ventilators to aid the anaesthesia of the

respiratory patient. Aiming to identify signs of impeding difficulties and how to reduce the risks to

the cardiac patient, an understanding of the pharmacology of the drugs used will be another main

focus of this lecture.

Lecture Five: Anaesthesia for the trauma patient

The trauma patient will often have multiple organ systems affected that require a change to the

anaesthetic plan. For example, renal changes may be present and will affect the excretion of many of

the drugs that we choose. Other considerations, in particular traumatic brain injury, will be

addressed in this lecture as well as addressing the blood loss we often see with these patients.

Lecture Six: Anaesthesia for the endocrine and GI patient

Patients with endocrine disorders will often need additional support prior to undergoing surgery.

However, this is isn’t always possible and the nurse needs to vigilantly monitor for changes and

address these in the drugs that are selected. This lecture will also address GI anaesthesia’s such as

GDV and septic peritonitis.
