Preventing Catastrophe - Organ system monitoring in the critical patient (for nurses)
When caring for the critical patient where systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) is a potential issue, the last thing we want is for problems to snowball out of control into multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). It is therefore crucial that we have an idea of what could happen and how best to monitor for these changes so that intervention can take place. This webinar will focus on monitoring organ systems in the critical patient at risk of MODS, with an aim to better equip the veterinary nurse in these situations and provide the best outcome possible for that patient.
