Preanesthetic evaluation (Proceedings)


CVC IN KANSAS CITY PROCEEDINGS


After classifying your patient, consider signalment, history, client information, temperament, physical exam & diagnostics. Formulate a plan based on all this information and keep good record of your findings. Consider writing your plan on a pre-anesthetic form and your anesthesia record on another form. This helps you stay organized systematically. You will not miss key factors in helping you choose drugs, dosages and techniques. Also, legally, you have deciding factors written as to why you chose the drugs you did.
