Managing Risks Associated With Anesthesia
Because every anesthetic episode includes a measure of risk, we proactively prepare to minimize the onset of complications. We consider pre-existing conditions (kidney or heart disease) and take into account breed-specific predispositions. Based on the patient’s medical history and thorough examination, the anesthetic protocol is carefully created for each individual patient.
Excerpt from ACVAA position statement regarding the training process and role of board-certified veterinary anesthesiologists.
A veterinary anesthesiologist’s role in patient care extends beyond simply prescribing anesthetic drugs. Prior to anesthesia, a diplomate evaluates the animal’s physical condition and any disease that may negatively impact the animal’s response to anesthesia. They may prescribe (or guide) treatment to help stabilize the patient and to increase peri-anesthetic safety of the patient. Additionally they manage all aspects of peri-procedural pain, monitor, diagnose, and treat anesthetic-related complications that may arise and keep a legal record of the same. In addition to expertise in managing acute pain, many veterinary anesthesiologists can also make educated recommendations and/or provide treatment for chronic pain. They also provide consultation for veterinarians regarding anesthesia or analgesia care of individual patients.
