The anaesthesia team includes 3 European Specialists in Veterinary Anaesthesia and 2 residents (training to become specialists). Each horse undergoing general anaesthesia at the Animal Health Trust will be assessed and anaesthetised by a specialist in veterinary anaesthesia or by a resident. Multiparameter monitoring including blood gas analysis is used to monitor the patient during anaesthesia.
Our specialists are available to give telephone advice and in-house consultancy services to veterinary surgeons in both general and referral practices. We also encourage vets to come and see practice with us to develop their skills in anaesthesia and analgesia.
