Clinical Theater 1

Available for RACE approved CE credit if watched from 8:00AM-8:50AM PST on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. 

Local anesthetics stop the transmission of pain from peripheral tissues to the central nervous system, making this an incredibly powerful analgesic drug class. Pain relief occurs not only intra-operatively but also post-operatively and may last far beyond the duration of the drug (months-years). Patients with lower pain levels have better recoveries from anesthesia, normal behavior at home and are more interactive with owners. Miraculous! We will discuss the importance of using local anesthetics, review all of the local anesthetic drugs and engage in a step-by-step ‘how to’ for some of the most commonly used local anesthetic blocks.
