EP23: Peri-Anesthetic Fluid Therapy for the Renal Patient

July 6, 2022

In this episode, we will discuss the peri-anesthetic fluid management of Raisin, a 16-yr-old Siamese cat, previously diagnosed with Stage 3 chronic kidney disease. Raisin requires general anesthesia for a dental scaling due to periodontitis. We will follow Raisin from preanesthetic examination and assessment through anesthesia and recovery, with a focus on anesthetic concerns and fluid therapy goals for a renal patient. The listener will learn the benefits of pre-anesthetic fluid administration, what fluid type and rate are most appropriate for this patient, and whether fluid therapy should be continued following anesthesia.
