Anaesthesia & Analgesia: Compromised Patients Distance Ed

In this course, participants will apply their foundational knowledge in anaesthesia to planning and administering anaesthesia and analgesia in patients presenting with comorbidities such as impaired renal and cardiac function, diabetes, as well as patients presenting with conditions requiring emergency surgery. Learners will be encouraged to utilize a problem-based approach to create individualized protocols that reduce complications and improve outcomes.

Prerequisite: participants are assumed to have a sound knowledge of anaesthesia foundational principles (including drug physiology and anaesthesia equipment). Please see the 'Who should enrol' section for further details on assumed knowledge.

 

Learning Outcomes

 

By successfully completing this course, you will be able to do the following for patients with common comorbidities or special presentations (e.g. renal insufficiency/disease, extremes of age, endocrine disease, BOAS, cardiac insufficiency/disease) and emergency presentations (e.g. trauma, c-section, gastric dilation/torsion, urinary obstruction):

  • Identify anaesthetic risk factors and potential complications 
  • Devise plans to minimize risks and complications 
  • Formulate first line approaches to managing peri-anaesthetic complications 
  • Formulate a plan for peri- and postoperative analgesia 

Modules

  1. Anaesthesia for patients with common comorbidities/disorders and special conditions 
  2. Anaesthetic considerations for patients requiring emergency anaesthesia and/or surgery

What is Distance Education?

Premium, intensive online veterinary CE

All CVE Distance Education (DE) programs are mentored by leading veterinary experts who will provide individual feedback and advice on completion of the modules. Each module may include written content, technique videos, self-reflections, quizzes and online submission of assignments.

Maximise the opportunity to expand and consolidate your learning by participating in the tutor moderated group discussion forum.

Who should enrol?

This course is suitable for qualified veterinarians.

Assumed knowledge: It is expected that participants in this course are already competent at the following learning objectives which were covered in Anaesthesia & Analgesia Course 1 - Fundamentals:

  • Devise a protocol, appropriate for your practice, for systematic preanaesthetic preparation aimed at minimising risk and optimising safety of anaesthesia
  • Inform on inhalation anaesthesia equipment including on use, maintenance, testing, and patient appropriate setting up
  • Rationalise the importance of perianesthetic monitoring including the choice of methods of monitoring based on understanding of respective advantages, disadvantages and limitations.
  • Competently and confidently manage common peri-anaesthetic complications through application of a systematic approach
  • Apply sound understanding of the pharmacology of drugs commonly used for sedation/pre-anaesthetic medication, induction and maintenance of anaesthesia to justify anaesthetic drug protocols.
  • Rationalise the use of analgesics for pre-emptive analgesia, multimodal analgesia, and balanced anaesthesia.
  • Integrate analgesia into the anaesthetic protocols for the surgical patient.

 

Digital Badge

On completion of this course, participants will earn a Veterinary Anaesthesia & Analgesia micro-credential digital badge. Digital badges are verified credentials that allow earners to easily communicate their skills and qualifications online. A digital badge can be used in email signatures, websites and social media platforms and contains verified metadata describing the qualification and the process required to earn it. Please note: this is not a higher education award and not a qualification recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework.  Further information can be found in the micro-credential terms and conditions.
