Dr. Andre Shih, who is double boarded in critical care (emergency medicine) and anesthesia, gave an informative and entertaining lecture to local Bend and Central Oregon veterinarians on anesthesia, emergencies, and analgesia. His lecture focused on anesthesia in the critical patient and emergency situations and how to develop the ideal anesthetic protocol from start to finish. Scenarios ranged from operating on severe trauma cases to heart failure patients. Given the feedback from his lecture we will be looking to bring Dr. Shih back again later this year. A huge thanks to our cosponsor, the Central Oregon Veterinary Medical Association, for helping us provide continuing education credits to attendees.
