New ‘how to’ videos highlight the role of local anesthetics in improving pain management.

The WSAVA’s Global Pain Council’s (GPC’s) Global Pain Survey showed that, while local anesthetics are available globally, they are not in common use because of a lack of familiarity with their use or the correct protocols.

To fill this ‘education gap’, the GPC has produced a series of ‘how to’ videos covering local anesthetic techniques for the small animal practitioner. They show how these anesthetics can be used to 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.
