Anesthesia and Analgesia for Veterinary Technicians 5th Edition PDF
Under new authorship, the fourth edition, entitled Anesthesia and Analgesia for Veterinary Technicians, not only carried a new name that reflected the intended audience, but also included many changes that enhanced accessibility, con-tent, and practical application for instructors, students, and practicing anesthetists. With thoroughly updated content and expanded chapters, this new fifth edition continues to be the trusted guide to the principles and practice of veterinary anesthesia and analgesia in large and small animals.
he content of the fifth edition has been substantially up-dated to reflect the many changes that have occurred in the practice of anesthesia and analgesia since publication of the previous edition, including new drugs, equipment, and techniques. These updates and additions include numerous new photos and illustrations throughout the text to facilitate the ease of learning complex concepts and the addition of a much- expanded discussion of electrocardiographic interpretation to Chapter 6. In addition, the organization of several chapters was changed based on suggestions of re-viewers and readers of the fourth edition. The intent of these changes is to increase accessibility and practical value for students of veterinary technology as well as practicing veterinary technicians.
Another new feature of the fifth edition is the addition of anesthesia of camelids to Chapter 11: Anesthesia of Ruminants, Camelids, and Swine. Large-animal practitioners are being called upon more than ever to treat llamas and alpacas. New information on camelid anesthesia prepares them to handle these patients appropriately.
Rather than being a small animal anesthesia text with large animals addressed separately, this practical resource is a true multi species text in which each of the common domestic species (dogs, cats, horses, cattle, camelids, and swine) is given balanced treatment throughout. Readers will find the following features in this edition that were present in the previous edition:
• Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter
• Key terms and a chapter outline at the beginning of each chapter
• Key points at the end of each chapter
• Suggested readings
• Review questions and answers
• Technician notes that emphasize important points and practical tips gleaned from the narrative
• Reference tables and boxes designed to facilitate rapid access to key information, such as fluid administration rates, properties of anesthetic drugs, oxygen flow rates, anesthetic protocols, and normal and abnormal monitoring parameters.
