In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education webinar, Amy Newfield, CVT, VTS (ECC) discusses nursing care for the critically ill dog and cat. The critical patient requires different and more intensive nursing care than your "routine" patient. Nursing care and the ability to quickly recognize a change in a patient's status may be the difference between life and death.
This lecture will focus on intensive monitoring techniques and tricks of the trade. Blood pressure monitoring, spot check ECG's, fluid therapy, tracheostomy care, handling of "tubes," and dealing with the "down" patient will all be discussed.
