About The Webinar

Head trauma patients are commonly seen within veterinary practice, and the treatment of these patients can prove challenging. In order to achieve a positive outcome in these cases, they require intensive treatment and nursing care. As a veterinary nurse, you play a vital role in monitoring these patients, and alerting the veterinary surgeon to any changes in their condition. The mainstays of therapy include intravenous fluids including hyperosmolar agents, as well as analgesia.
