Anaesthesia and Analgesia: Locoregional Anaesthesia Course

Postpone because of the COVID 19 situation

Bild

June 11-13th 2020, Zurich, Switzerland

The course focuses on the acquisition of the theoretical and practical skills in the veterinary locoregional anaesthesia. A three-days course in which approaches to peripheral nerves and epidural and intrathecal space in dogs and cats will be discussed and carried out. The physiology and anatomy will be examined in detail, locoregional anaesthesia will be tackled with "blind" techniques, with the help of the neurostimulator and the ultrasound scanner. The course is aimed at all those who have or not have experience in this field.
