About this Book

Veterinary Technician's Manual for Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care provides a comprehensive reference on emergency and critical care medicine for veterinary technicians of all skill levels. Beginning with information on initial patient assessment and triage, the first section covers shock and initial stabilization, venous access, monitoring, and cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation. A section on specific conditions such as cardiovascular and respiratory emergencies is organized by system, with a final section highlighting select topics like anesthesia and analgesia, transfusion medicine, and critical care pharmacology. Case studies, review questions, and images are provided on a companion website at www.wiley.com/go/norkus.

Coverage focuses on dogs and cats, with special considerations for handling exotic and avian emergencies covered in a dedicated chapter. This in-depth material in an easy-to-navigate format is an essential resource for veterinary technicians and assistants, emergency and critical care veterinary technician specialists, and veterinary technician students.
