Anesthesia For Your Practice Team May 22-24, 2022 • 22 CE Credits
This team course blends lecture, discussion, and workshop sessions to provide a comprehensive look at small animal anesthesia for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. Experienced instructors will share information on anesthesia delivery equipment, anesthetic, analgesic and adjunctive medications, techniques for drug delivery, avenues for providing supportive care and interpretation of monitoring tools.
After completing this program, veterinary nurses and technicians will have gained the ability to select appropriate anesthesia equipment for a given patient; understand how different components can affect anesthesia management; calculate how much oxygen is available in supply tanks; know how to fill and empty a vaporizer; determine the oxygen flow rate and vaporizer setting to use for inhalation anesthesia induction and maintenance; and appropriately select ventilator settings for a given patient.
Everyday Behavioral Medicine May 21-22, 2022 • 12 CE Credits
This course focuses on ensuring that veterinary nurses and technicians— whether they are new to behavioral medicine or have been working with behavior for years—maximize their
ability to communicate with clients and observe and interpret patient behavior. All the lectures will be case based and will conclude with a series of comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment approaches.
After completing this program, veterinary nurses and technicians will have gained the ability to objectively read and understand canine and feline signaling and use that to identify when something deviates from normal; learn how to intervene in daily behavioral cases that come to the clinic; gain an understanding of communication protocol; and understand different approaches to similar behavioral problems.
Institute will be held at the Caribe Royale Orlando in Orlando, Florida, from May 21-27. Registration is now open. Secure your spot at NAVC.com/Institute
