The Pain STOPS Here: Loco-regional Analgesic Techniques

Wednesday, October 11
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Griffon Hall

Fees: $200 early / $250 late
Open to all audiences

Pain can be defined as an adverse sensory and emotional experience. If adequate analgesic drugs and pain management techniques are administered prior to surgery, patients require lower doses of analgesic medications at a reduced frequency over the entire course of the painful event. Clients have come to expect pain management from veterinary facilities, and adding loco-regional anesthetic techniques can be a simple and profitable way to augment patient care.

Local anesthetic drugs are considered the quintessential analgesic, uniquely capable of blocking 100% of pain perception. Loco-regional anesthetic techniques (nerve blocks) provide a rapid onset of analgesia, work synergistically with other analgesics, and enable reduced inhalant concentrations while improving patient recoveries. Local anesthetic drugs play a crucial role in a multi-modal plan.

During this laboratory, attendees will have the opportunity to perform a variety of regional pain management techniques, on canine and feline cadaver models, as follows:
*canine and feline block techniques discussed include brachial plexus
*radial–ulnar–median–musculoskeletal (RUMM) ring
*intercostal, incisional, intra-articular and intratesticular
*epidural analgesia

Helpful tips and pointers will also be discussed.
