How Do I Manage the Brachycephalic Patient?

This Course Is Approved for 1 CE Credit     |     Phillip Lerche, PhD, BVSc, DACVAA

Understanding the components of the brachycephalic syndrome and their impact on intubation and extubation is key to successful anesthetic management of the brachycephalic patient. Being prepared for a difficult intubation, and the bigger challenge of a difficult extubation, is essential to successfully managing airway difficulties. Exercising close observation at all times, extending longer into recovery than for non-brachycephalic dogs is prudent.
