Anaesthesiology II

9 - 13 October 2019 | Shanghai, China

   Please note: This course is open to Newcomers!

Overview

The 2019 Advanced Anesthesia (Anesthesia II) course program is designed for veterinarians who wish to advance their skills in contemporary techniques of anesthetic and perioperative patient managemnt in small animal practice and have already acquired foundation knowledge in the Anesthesia I course (Basic Anesthesia). The program provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of the traditional anesthesia machinery and modern anesthesia workstations,  of state of the art techniques of total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) and high versus low flow inhalant anesthesia. Furthermore, participants will acquire appropriate skills in interpreting the ECG and treating arrhythmias, applying various forms of mechanical ventilation, and diagnosing and treating deranggements in acid-base and electrolyte status.

Topics

■ Pharmacological aspects of injectable and inhalant anesthesia.
■ ECG rhythm diagnostics and therapy during anesthesia
■ Methods of mechanical ventilation
■ Perioperative diagnosis & management of acid-base disturbances.
■ Perioperative diagnosis & management of electrolyte disturbances.

Workshops

■ Anesthesia machinery
■ High and low flow anesthesia
■ ECG rhythm diagnostics and management during anesthesia
■ Modes of mechanical ventilation
■ Perioperative acid-base and electrolyte homeostasis management

Literature reading prerequisites for the course:

■ Anesthesia machinery
■ Pharmacology of injectable anesthetics used for induction and maintenance of anesthesia
■ Pharmacokinetics of inhalant anesthetics
■ Positive pressure ventilation of anesthetized patients
■ Drugs used in perioperative management of cardiac arrhythmias     
■ Physiology of the acid-base and electrolyte homeostasis           

Language

All modules will be held in China, in English language with consecutive translation in Chinese.
