Advanced anaesthesia for surgical or prolonged procedures
This unit provides information on the use of anaesthetics for surgical procedures. It also includes information on the use of anaesthetics to provide humane restraint during other, non-painful, procedures, such as imaging. After completion of this module, learners should have an understanding of factors influencing the selection and application of anaesthesia for these procedures.
Online only – 19-21st March 2024. Materials will release two weeks in advance.
You will cover

- Balanced anaesthesia
- Post anaesthetic recovery
Key Skills you will develop
- An understanding of why anaesthesia is required for both surgical and non-surgical procedures
