Course Summary

This 10 min eCPD tutorial covers local anaesthesia of the thoracic limb prior to surgery, allowing for a smoother plane of anaesthesia and a better recovery. Regional anaesthesia is becoming much more popular and there are many techniques which may be carried out in general practice. With veterinary nurses as the primary anaesthetist and the person most likely to recover patients, it is essential to have a good comprehension of the analgesic options available, how they work and the potential side effects including complications.
