Docsinnovent announce BSAVA lecture

Docsinnovent has announced a lecture to be presented at the forthcoming BSAVA congress. “Reflux and regurgitation: what can you do to protect your small animal patients during anaesthesia” will be presented by Dr Ivan Crotaz BVetMed MRCVS and Dr Muhammed Nasir MBBS BSc FFARCSI MRCA at 4.30pm in Premier Lounge, Arena Birmingham.

Chris Geddes MRCVS, Marketing Manager for Docsinnovent, says the lecture is not to be missed for two reasons.

“Firstly, the topic is very current – a lot of new information is emerging about regurgitation and reflux in our veterinary patients. We are learning that the starving times we have all been recommending for years may not be ideal after all.

“Secondly, the lecture will be presented by both a vet with an interest in airway management (Dr Crotaz) and a renowned human anaesthesiologist (Dr Nasir) – so we as a profession can learn from what is happening in the field of human medicine.”

The session will include a review of the situation in human anaesthesia. The anatomy of the upper airway and oesophagus of the major small animal veterinary species will be examined as well as the pathogenesis, occurrence and disease associated with reflux.  Pre-, intra- and post-operative management will be discussed, as well as current recommendations for starving veterinary patients.

The lecture is free for BSAVA attendees to attend and will be followed by drinks and nibbles supplied by Docsinnovent, who are also exhibiting at BSAVA congress on stand 1006.
