Anaesthesia of the BOAS Patient

Brachycephalic breeds have increased massively in popularity over the past few years, and so it is far more common that we have to anaesthetise these patients on an almost daily basis. This lecture explains what BOAS is and how it can be diagnosed, along with how to manage these patients from the time of pre-medication, right through to the recovery period.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To understand what BOAS is
  2. To learn how it can be diagnosed
  3. To learn what breeds can be affected
  4. To gain confidence in anaesthetising these patients
  5. To appreciate what risks these patients can be exposed to whilst undergoing general anaesthesia
