About The Webinar

Disturbances of acid-base occur commonly in small animal emergency and critical care patients, and it is becoming standard practice to have rapid access to point of care analyzers that can measure acid base and blood gas values. Changes in acid-base status reflect abnormalities in the metabolic system, respiratory system, or both. Knowledge and understanding of acid-base changes in disease states is integral to accurate diagnosis, as well as appropriate treatment. This webinar will focus on the traditional approach to acid-base evaluation, and discuss interpretation of arterial and venous blood gas values. We will also discuss the most common differential diagnoses for the causes of these abnormalities.
