Designed for small animal DVM/CVT teams, this webinar will dive into the new evidence that suggests some anesthetic concepts once believed to be true may in fact be false. Discover what those are and hear about newer, clinically applicable anesthetic techniques. Learn about the most common physiologic disturbances associated with general anesthesia, how to recognize when anesthetic complications are present and how to prioritize life-threatening anesthetic issues. Plus, get tips for how to engage clients with a fear of anesthesia and review common anesthetic case scenarios. To encourage team participation, CVTs are invited to pay the member fee for this webinar.
