General Veterinary Technician Session: What does 99% of critical care patients need? Venous access is useful for a few purposes in emergency and critical care. Vascular access serves as a lifeline in many cases allowing us to administer proper therapy and ease of appropriate diagnostics. Peripheral and central venous catheters, intraosseous catheterization, and arterial catheterization are commonly performed as methods of fluid, drug, and nutrient administration, pressure measurement, and blood sampling. Let's talk about when to use the methods, how it is done, and to make the best of them.

Kenichiro Yagi

ICU Manager, Blood Bank Manager
Adobe Animal Hospital

Over the 17 years in practice, Ken has discovered and refined his role as a veterinary technician by promoting compassionate and progressive care for the patients and their family. He obtained his VTS certification in emergency and critical care as well as small animal internal medicine. He now practices at Adobe Animal Hospital as an ICU Manager and Blood Bank Manager. Ken’s role has progressed from directly caring for patients to providing an environment for others to do the same.

Ken works to encourage further recognition of the vital role of the veterinary nurses and technicians through work with organizations such as the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, and serving as a board member of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society, the Academy of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Technicians, and the Veterinary Innovation Council. He pursues the goal by showing the value of the profession’s perspective in veterinary medicine.

Ken invites everyone to ask “Why?” to understand the “What” and “How” of our field, and to constantly pursue new limits as veterinary professionals and individuals.
