We will briefly explore the types of emergency laparotomy cases that may be presented to your practices and how we as RVNs can make a difference to our patients by understanding the pathophysiology. We will then focus on the anaesthetic management from preparation and pre-anaesthetic exam through to the recovery period. This presentation aims to get you thinking and build your confidence in managing the anaesthesia care for these cases.

This lecture will outline up to date evidence-based information and provide practical application of wound management techniques in hard to heal wounds.
