Cardiopulmonary resuscitation: a review (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

Cardiopulmonary arrest and resuscitation are not practice-builders! The success rate of cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation (CPCR) for animals or humans is disappointingly low.

Preventing and treating hypotension (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

One of the most important assessments a veterinarian can make is whether or not oxygen delivery is adequate. Unfortunately, it is not possible to easily or directly assess oxygen delivery in our patients.

Monitoring anesthetized patients-capnography (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

The capnograph is a noninvasive monitoring device that can provide information on ventilation (pulmonary function), blood flow, and equipment function. Knowledge of respiratory and cardiovascular physiology is essential to the understanding of capnography.

Anesthesia for patients with liver disease (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

The liver is integral to the production of clotting factors and albumin, and the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, fats. In addition, a variety of other endogenous and exogenous substances are metabolized in the liver. Indeed, the liver plays a role in the elimination of most anesthetic drugs.

Anesthetizing patients with cardiovascular disease (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

I'll review the pathophysiological changes associated with the common congenital and acquired cardiac defects in small animal medicine and discuss the characteristics of anesthetic drugs that may make them desirable of undesirable for each problem.

Opioids for acute and chronic pain management (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

Patient stress is probably a contributing factor in some cases of adverse patient outcome. Stress during induction of anesthesia can increase circulating catecholamine concentration predisposing the heart to arrhythmias.

Feline anesthesia and pain management–what's the latest (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

Anesthetic and pain related mortality would appear to be an easily quantifiable statistic that could be used to measure the outcome of the profession's current anesthetic practices. However, to rely solely on death rate as the measure of the quality of anesthetic care provided is inadequate. The anesthetist's goal should be to minimize the risks to the patient's health while reducing pain and stress.

NSAIDs for acute and chronic pain management (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

Use of analgesics prior to surgery (preemptive analgesia) may also be beneficial. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are commonly being administered during the perioperative period. Debate exists as to when to administer the drugs (preoperatively vs. postoperatively).

Dexdomitor and adjunctive analgesic drugs (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

Alpha 2 adrenergic agonists bind to alpha 2 receptors located in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord and brainstem, modulating the release of substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide and various other neurotransmitters involved in rostral transmission of nociceptive information.
