Nursing the Septic Patient
Sepsis is a disease process that can result from any source of infection in our small animal veterinary patients. These patients can quickly become challenging to monitor and require significant care from the entire veterinary team. This webinar will discuss the physiology of sepsis and how it can manifest in vital signs, strategies for treating sepsis in cats and dogs, and how good nursing care can make the difference in these patients. Case studies will be utilized to bring the information into practical and useful take-home points.
