Advanced Anaesthesia Workshop

Advanced Anaesthesia Workshop

Master local anaesthetic techniques and be confident to implement them from day one!

Veterinary practice is becoming increasingly complex, and we must continue improving to match up our clients’ expectations.

Local anaesthesia has evolved in the last few years to become a very precise tool. The technology available today allow us to desensitise with great accuracy any part nerve or part of the body.

This workshop targets people with some experience in local anaesthesia who want to improve their knowledge and expertise. We will use readily available equipment (eg. ultrasonography, spinal needles, etc) to master very useful local anaesthetic techniques that general practitioners will be able to implement from day one.

By successfully completing this course you will-

  • Gain experience and dexterity in eye-hand coordination
  • Identify useful blocks for specific body areas.
  • Master identification of some nerve structures and ultrasonographic landmarks: sciatic, femoral nerves, transabdominalis muscle plane block, etc.
