Tracheostomy tubes are rarely used, even in dedicated emergency clinics; but now and then they are essential to save an animal’s life. This 60 minute eCPD tutorial for veterinary nurses looks at the reasons we may consider a tracheostomy necessary, how we would place the tube, and just as importantly how we manage the tube and nurse the patients to avoid potentially fatal complications.

This CPD tutorial is worth 60 minutes towards your RCVS requirements.
