About The Webinar

Good patient monitoring skills are one of the important duties for any veterinary nurse. In modern nursing, we have increased access to more modern equipment, which can often be confusing, and scary, if we are unfamiliar with its use and what it means. Despite having such equipment available we also need to remember how ‘basic’ monitoring skills are equally as important and how they are used to assess our cardiovascular, respiratory and central nervous systems. This lecture will look at the use of equipment such as pulse oximetry, Capnography and ECGs, but will remind nurses of what is ‘normal’ in our patients and what abnormal signs can mean. The use of videos will also be used to look at methods of assessing neurological function, which is a vital component in the nursing care of trauma patients, particularly those that have sustained head trauma.
