In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education video, Dr. Tracy Julius, DACVECC, at Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota reviews mechanical ventilation basics in the veterinary patient. What parameters for hypoxemia or hypercapnea warrant ventilation? When do we decide to ventilate a cat or dog, and what type of nursing care is involved? How do you set up the ventilator and evaluate ventilator wave forms? If you haven't already seen our VETgirl "ventilator set up" and "how and when to ventilate" shorter videos, check those out first.
As this video is approximately 40 minutes, VETgirl members you can take a quiz to get passive CE.
