|DVT*3050 Surgical and Anaesthetic Principles I S,F,W(3-4) [0.50]|
This course deals with the practical and theoretical aspects of anaesthetic and surgical techniques in animals. The lecture portion of the course introduces the students to various anaesthetic agents and techniques, as well as the principles of asepsis, the importance of monitoring and the correct response to anaesthetic emergencies. Each laboratory session is also preceded by a lecture in which the students learn about the rationale behind and possible complications with each surgery, thus enabling them to be involved in client education. During the laboratory sessions, the students work in small groups, rotating within these groups, becoming proficient in anaesthesia, surgical assistance, instrumental handling, surgical nursing and post-operative care.
