Specialize in Veterinary Anesthesiology with this comprehensive online Professional Master’s Degree designed by elite veterinary sector professionals" 

master anestesiologia

The objective of this complete program is to learn all the aspects of the intervention in Veterinary Anesthesiology, which we now present to you. With extensive methodological development, throughout this program you will be able to learn each and every one of the fundamental points in this area of work. 

In this sense, the Professional Master’s Degree will begin with the phases prior to the application of anesthesia to the patient: knowledge of the equipment, previous management of the patient, medication and study of drug-drug interactions. 

The study of the physiology most closely related to anesthesia, focusing on the involvement of the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous and endocrine systems, will occupy the second part of the Professional Master’s Degree, an essential review to understand the functioning and consequences on the patient of the application of anesthesia. 

However, the success of an anesthetic procedure goes far beyond the administration of the appropriate drugs. It is essential to master pre-anesthetic assessment, induction, maintenance and education in order to achieve success in the process and a return to normality without sequelae. Fluid therapy and even transfusion must also be taken into account and, therefore, will be covered in our complete program in Veterinary Anesthesiology. 

The anesthesiologist must also take care of pain management. A basic vital sign that, if not adequately controlled, can be one of the main causes of delayed discharge and perioperative complications. Acquiring competence in this part of care is another of our major objectives. 

Monitoring, anesthetic complications, management of anesthesia under special conditions and the application of balanced anesthesia and multimodal anesthesia protocols will also be covered in this highly scientifically rigorous program.
