El objetivo es mejorar y poner en práctica las técnicas de anestesia local en perros y gatos, y finalmente el tratamiento del dolor agudo.
Introductory Paragraph for Local Anesthetic educational videos
Results of the GPC 2013 Global Pain Survey – http://www.wsava.org/wsava-global-pain-survey – indicate that no matter what region of the world one resides in, local anesthetics are readily available; however their use was ranked well behind other treatment modalities/classes. This was surprising considering that local anesthetics are very safe and cost-effective analgesics that are ubiquitously available. Lack of familiarity with use and/or protocols was cited as the primary limiting factor to more common use. In the WSAVA Guidelines on the Recognition, Assessment, and Management of Pain, http://www.wsava.org/sites/default/files/jsap_0.pdf, chapters 15 & 29, include descriptions and diagrams depicting various local-regional blocks. Dr. Paulo Steagall, professor of the University of Montreal and member of WSAVA Global Pain Council has worked with Dr. Stelio Luna (UNESP-Botucatu, Brazil) and Dr.Patrick Burns (University of Edinburgh) to produce a series of videos on local anesthesia in order to help with this educational gap. The goal of the videos below is to provide an additional educational resource that demonstrates various local anesthetic blocks to increase user comfort in their application and thereby heighten pain management, particularly in the peri-operative setting where the combination of an opioid, NSAID, and local anesthetic provide the ideal multi-modal analgesic approach.
