Regions Now: Local blocks aren't just for large animal vets: loco-regional techniques that any small animal vet can use

Online , Online, Gloucester Gloucestershire, GL2 2AB

brought to you by South East region

In this instalment of the Regions Now lectures, Sean Langton will discuss loco-regional techniques that any small animal vet can use.  General practitioners may feel out of their depth when considering the use of loco-regional blocks in companion animals. This course aims to demystify the topic and empower practitioners to try new techniques to improve their skill set in anaesthesia and analgesia. The course will focus on loco-regional anaesthetic techniques that can be achieved by any small animal vet using their knowledge of anatomy without any complex or expensive equipment. There will be a brief introduction about the rationale behind and pharmacology of loco-regional anaesthesia. Following the recorded webinar there will be a live event with a series of case examples giving an insight into how these techniques can be built into every day practice.

Live session
The live session will take place on 7th September 2022.  Join us in the waiting room at 7.30pm, for a prompt 7.45pm course start.  This session will last 1.5 hours with opportunities for questions and discussion with the speaker.  This live session will study a series of cases typical of first opinion practice which use the information from the webinar in the context of the overall anaesthesia and analgesia management, and Sean will take questions from delegates.

Delegates will have access to the online content and discussion forum, and there will be opportunity for community peer to peer, and volunteer discussion, which is an important part of our Regional CPD.
