The vet/nurse team: Ensuring effective and safe anaesthesia for our patients

Improving patient safety has become a central focus of modern medicine and more specifically anaesthesia. Anaesthesia is risky and adverse events and intraoperative complications can evolve rapidly and become life-threatening. Ensuring patient safety is a fundamental task that anybody involved in anaesthesia should master.
In this lecture we will outline how patient safety can be improved in our daily anaesthetics by improving communication, keeping good records, debriefing, using check lists, and monitoring and responding to changes in patient status.

  • - Outline what causes errors in anaesthesia practice
  • - Discuss how the vet/nurse team can work together to improve anaesthesia safety within the veterinary practice
  • - Identify common complications seen in patients under anaesthesia
Speakers
Lisa Angell, Head Anaesthesia Nurse - Queen Mother Hospital for Animals, Royal Veterinary College.
Carolina Palacios Jimenez, Senior Lecturer Anaesthesia and Analgesia, Head of Anaesthesia Service - Royal Veterinary College
