Go with the flow: Fluid therapy for RVNs
We commonly encounter patients receiving intravenous fluid therapy as veterinary nurses. But how can be plan and deliver the best possible care to these patients?
This webinar will discuss the types of fluid deficits we see in practice and the compartments they originate from, so we can accurately assess fluid deficits in our patients. We will also look at the different fluid therapy routes, and their indications and contraindications. We’ll discuss crystalloids and colloids, when we use hypertonic and hypotonic fluids, and how to calculate and administer fluids to our small animal patients. Lastly, we’ll talk about our nursing considerations for patients receiving fluid therapy, and how to monitor these patients to make sure our fluids are having the desired effect.
