EASAV presents a lecture and wet lab for DVMs & RVTs...

Practical local anesthesia techniques for  busy DVMs & RVTs
Pending AbVMA, SVMA & CVBC-approval for 1.5 + 2 CE credits (Lecture/lab)

Speaker: Daniel Pang, BVSc, MSc, PhD, DACVAA, DECVAA

Seminar Abstract: Local anesthesia techniques (i.e., local blocks) are highly effective at providing analgesia, both during & after surgery. Their effect in blocking transmission of pain from the surgical site makes anesthesia easier to manage as there is a reduced response to procedures, allowing for lower concentrations of inhalational anesthetics to be used & resulting in fewer associated adverse effects.

Dental blocks are easy to perform and very effective. Their advantages in providing analgesia and reducing anesthetic requirements are particularly beneficial in patients with dental disease, many of which are geriatric and have co-existing diseases (e.g. cardiovascular disease, renal disease, endocrinopathies).

This lab will allow users to learn & practice local blocks for dogs & cats in a structured, supportive environment. The focus will be on common dental blocks, with additional opportunities to learn epidural and retrobulbar injection techniques. Local block theory and techniques will be presented in a webinar before the lab.

This is a great lab to take prior to our RVT Prophy & Advanced DVM Extraction labs happening in September 2023!
