Make sure you join Jeff Wilson to discuss: The path to effective postoperative pain management
Meeting ID: 818 7396 3700
Managing acute, postoperative pain in canine and feline patients is critical to minimize suffering and prevent the development of chronic pain. Pain management guidelines advocate for preventive, multimodal surgical pain protocols that combine multiple analgesics with different modes of action along the pain pathway. This talk will review the principles of acute pain management and provide specific treatment recommendations that can help practitioners optimize perioperative pain protocols for their patients. Topics covered include 1) Understanding the importance of pain management. 2) Recognizing acute pain (pain scoring) 3) Treating acute pain, 4) Principles of multimodal analgesia, 5) Treatment options
