Ins and outs of tube care for Nurses
There are many different types of tubes and drains that you may come across as a veterinary nurse. This webinar will discuss the nursing considerations for maintaining and caring for different types of feeding tubes, urinary catheters, chest and abdominal drains. Many of our critical care patients in hospital will have multiple drains/tubes placed so we look at the reasons why our patient’s may need them placed and what we can be monitoring. What if my drain/tubes stop working? We will look at trouble shooting each of the different tubes and drains.
The Australian Veterinary Nurse and Technician (AVNAT) Regulatory Council has allocated (1) AVNAT CPD point to this continuing education activity.
