In the practice of anesthesia – no matter the procedure – there is always the possibility for complications to arise. The mark of a critical thinking anesthetist is how we react to those complications. In this talk, we will cover some of the most common anesthetic complications, how to approach them, and when we should be really worried! In addition, we will talk about what your monitors are actually telling you about what’s going on with your patient and what they’re NOT telling you. Join us as we discuss approaches to: decreased pulse oximetry readings; increased or decreased end tidal carbon dioxide readings; and hypo / hypertension.
“Give a shock bolus to that dog!” “Put that cat on twice maintenance.” Fluid therapy is something that technicians do every day in clinical practice. But have you stopped to think about the goals of fluid therapy or how to use the plethora of different fluids currently available? Why does one patient get Normosol and another get normal saline? This presentation will review the basics of fluid therapy, as well as the different fluids currently available. We will also discuss how fluids can be used to benefit patients suffering from specific disease conditions.
Speaker: Emily Barrell, DVM, MSc, DACVIM / University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine
Polyuria and polydipsia (PU/PD) are non-specific clinical signs with numerous causes. This presentation will review the differentials and pathophysiology for the causes of PU/PD in horses, as well as the diagnostics that should be considered in the work-up of a case of PU/PD.
In animals with a functional GI tract, enteral fluid therapy, defined as fluid administered directly into a segment of the intestine, is often a viable or supplementary alternative to intravenous fluid therapy. This presentation will describe the components of and considerations for enteral fluid therapy so that a practitioner could immediately institute this therapy in their own practice.
