Why do you want to work at our clinic?
I had a patient get very light under anesthesia abruptly I turned up the gas gave 5 quick breaths and they were back down and then I ran the iso at a slightly higher rate to prevent it from happening again.
Enucleation- anesthesia induced arrythmia. HR went from 200 to 20 within 10 seconds. Dr stopped cutting, we got an ecg on him, wasnt doing well, dr wanted every machine and a stethescope on him, wasnt leveling out so we woke him up. TPLO- HR steady at 80-90, pressures fine. Adjusting iso %, no change. HR dropped to 45-50, gave atropine, everything went up.
During my stay in Nicaragua I assisted a vet with spays and neuters. We were doing a routine spay on an older dog and shortly after I administered the anesthesia the dog went into cardiac arrest. I administered CPR immediately and when there was no change the vet administered CPR as well. The dog did not survive.
Yes I have and we acted quickly upon the situation and was able to recover the error in a timely manner.
I have been fortunate enough so far, that I have not had anything go wrong during a procedure.
Yes... Regroup and continue.
Yep. I blamed the person who forced me to do it.
We had a puppy crash on the table, I remained as calm as possible and did what I was told.
Yes.. Correct compose and move on.
There was a time that a patient was waking up on a surgery table. I followed the Flow of oxygen to discover a leak after the isofluorine and oxygen was not getting to the patient.It turned out that the iso was turned off due to another tech turning it the wrong way. After I checked my system I turned it back on and the patient turned out alright.
7. I have had things go wrong during a routine procedure. When things like that happen I tend to look at what went wrong the first time and not include that the next time or if itís a small mistake I will fix it and make a mental note to be more careful.
At school an animal stopped breathing during surgery so I let the veterinarian known and immediately started bagging the patient. I instructed another tech to draw up a reversal dose of drug and with the veterinarians permission we reversed the drug causing the apnea.
Never had.
Yes, I accidentally put a mask too far over a cat going under anesthesia and it was too tight around his neck :( he started to stop breathing but, more experienced techs were able to revive him.
Yes, I being a student stepped back and let the more experienced team members take over while trying to complete the little tasks I could to help support the team members dealing directly with the animal such as making sure all the necessary drugs were available and ready, and grabbing equipment they needed.
I had an animal crash and I used the emergency kit to revive the animal.
Yes, was able to correct issue rather promptly because not every procedure will be text book routine and you have to be able to think fast and do the best you can.
Yes, routine spay on a dog, patient was under anesthesia and stopped breathing, I immediately checked eye positioning and anesthesia level, patient seemed light. I manually had to breathe using resp. Bag and after a few minutes patient started breathing on her own and remained stable for the rest of the surgery.
I have had the needle fall off a pop top syringe, and I quickly removed the needle and decided that the dose that was given was determinable, so we waited for induction time and re calculated a dose accordingly.
