Anesthesia, Pain Management
7th Annual Gulf-Atlantic Veterinary Conference
We give potentially lethal drugs to patients with serious injury and debilitating illness. We are rightly apprehensive but now we can successfully manage many patients who would not have had a reasonable chance just a few years ago. We’ll include a case-based discussion of potential problems for high-risk patients. Problem-based case management reduces morbidity and mortality for our patients and importantly reduces stress in our hospitals every day.
a. Recognize special anesthetic concerns.
b. Develop problem-based case management.
c. Prioritize clinical responses.
