Davies publishes advice on conserving oxygen during COVID-19 pandemic

Davies Veterinary Specialists, the small animal referral practice in Hertfordshire, is sharing advice and guidelines to help conserve oxygen during anaesthesia, with this resource being more precious than ever during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The anaesthesia team at Davies have produced a fact sheet, infographic and CPD webinar to help practitioners safely minimise the oxygen and volatile anaesthetic agent used in animals. All resources can be found here https://vetspecialists.co.uk/oxygen-conservation/

Anaesthetist Sarah Gibson will be following up the webinar with a live online Q & A on Low Flow Anaesthesia on Tuesday 7th April at 2pm; to book your place please email CPD@vetspecialists.co.uk.

Managing Director Tim Richardson said: “By sharing our practical information on oxygen conservation, we hope we can help our colleagues safely use less oxygen during general anaesthesia and sedation, thus ensuring more of this valuable resource remains available.”

In line with the government advice and professional guidance from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), Davies, which is part of the Linneaus group, is physically open for urgent and emergency cases. For all other cases, assistance is being provided via remote consultation, be that either telephone or video.
