Anesthesia is an event, not just a drug choice. Understanding this concept is key to becoming a safer anesthetist. A thorough patient assessment and history review will allow the anesthetist to create a detailed, tailored, and balanced anesthesia plan of action for every patient. The goals of the preanesthesia phase will be discussed, as well as the agents and equipment available that will help ensure those goals are achieved.

Kim Spelts, BS,CVT,VTS (Guest Speaker)
The induction phase of anesthesia (along with the recovery phase) is one of the most likely times that a patient will experience potentially life-threatening complications related to anesthesia. The anesthetist must understand the cardiopulmonary effects of the anesthesia induction drugs in order to minimize the unwanted side effects and facilitate a smooth and rapid transition into general anesthesia. The goals of the induction phase of anesthesia will be discussed, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the induction drugs available.

Dr. Jamie Kopper, DVM, PhD, ACVIM
We all recognize that the horse that is thrashing on the ground is painful – but what about that horse standing quietly in the corner? How does today compare to yesterday? How can we best work with clients who have horses with chronically painful conditions to ensure that we are all doing our best to provide a good analgesia plan? Standardized scoring systems have been developed and validated for the horse to walk all of us (veterinary professionals and owners alike) through recognizing and monitoring pain in horses. This hour we will discuss the scoring systems, how to use them, integrate them into your practice (ambulatory and in hospital) and how they can improve your patient’s comfort.
