To Bag or Not to Bag
In this presentation we will endeavour to cover the many reasons to consider artificial ventilation in small animal practice with an emphasis on emergency practice. Once a decision has been made to provide artificial ventilation we need to consider the steps involved to obtain this. At this point, consideration and discussion will be including chemical enhancement of a patient to allow us to control or assist its ventilation, securing of the airway, the numerous ways to deliver a breathe, monitoring ventilation and weaning a patient off ventilation.
