This distance-learning event will first review avian anatomy and physiology, emphasizing clinically relevant ways that birds differ from mammals. This course will also go over anaesthesia monitoring equipment and what actually works on birds, as well as machine and basic equipment set-up. We will conclude with a discussion of common anaesthetic protocols used in avian patients.
