The aim of this presentation is to give a brief overview of anaesthesia in a variety of reptile and amphibian species. It will focus on the main areas of pre-operative anaesthetic considerations, anaesthetic induction, intubation, anaesthetic maintenance, anaesthetic monitoring techniques, intra-operative considerations and anaesthetic recovery. The author will also aim to highlight both the similarities and differences of reptile and amphibian anaesthesia compared to that in more traditional companion species.
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.
