The aim of this presentation is to give an 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. Differing anaesthetic techniques, agents and protocols will also be discussed utilising both the author's personal experiences and current published literature. The author will 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.
