WVC 91st Annual Conference
Specialty Veterinary Technician Session: With multiple classes of drugs treating a variety of conditions, keeping up with cardiac medications can be a challenge for the nursing team. This lecture will discuss the various classes of drugs and the pharmacology of how these drugs elicit the effect they do. Particular attention is paid to patient monitoring and side effects to watch. Technicians will find themselves with more confidence both in the treatment room and when discharging cardiac patients home with their owners.
