As Veterinary nurses we all know that when a call comes in about a slightly off colour, fluffed up avian patient we could already be dealing with a critically ill or emergency situation. Preparation is always the key and something the Veterinary Nurse in practice is invaluable at.

This session is part of the Veterinary Nursing Day, available to Veterinary Nurses only. Tickets for the Nursing Day only are available for £180.00.

As Veterinary nurses we all know that when a call comes in about a slightly off colour, fluffed up avian patient we could already be dealing with a critically ill or emergency situation. Preparation is always the key and something the Veterinary Nurse in practice is invaluable at.

In this lecture we will look at the initial admission of the patient including ward and cage set up along with the use of incubators, heat and oxygen therapy. Then we will go on to cover catheter placement, endotracheal/ air sac intubation, emergency drugs, CPR and recovery. 

This session is part of the Veterinary Nursing Day, available to Veterinary Nurses only. Tickets for the Nursing Day only are available for £180.00.
