Your first subject is an in depth look at Anaesthesia & Analgesia will add a lot of extra knowledge to your nursing skill set. Your patients will benefit from your improved understanding of setting up, monitoring anaesthetics and the recovery period. You will then study Fluid Therapy to better understand why we use fluid therapy in the veterinary clinic and how to safely monitor your patients. Then you will learn more about providing analgesia to those animals in pain, the pain pathways and non-pharmacological methods in Pain Management. Your last subject is Advanced Anaesthesia, where you will learn specific protocols for disease states, advanced monitoring equipment, and really cement your anaesthetic knowledge.
