Laboratory of Veterinary Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine

Veterinary Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine is a discipline that aids in the treatment of animal patients by minimizing pain and stress during the medical process. The areas covered by anesthesiology and pain medicine can be broadly categorized into anesthesia, sedation, analgesia and monitoring, and can be summarized as the process of monitoring and managing the effects and side effects of related drugs (anesthetics, sedatives, analgesics, etc.). In particular, anesthesia is an essential act to prevent the adverse effects of acute pain in surgery and to induce a patient into a state suitable for the procedure (stable anesthesia), but it is also a high-risk process with the possibility of fatal side effects, so high risk management (safe anesthesia) is essential. Therefore, this course teaches the expected effects of procedures and related drugs for stable anesthesia, and requires a clearer understanding of adverse effects other than the expected effects for safe anesthesia. It also requires monitoring to identify individual differences in these adverse effects and an understanding of first aid in anesthesia situations. Advances in science are improving the quality of anesthesia care, but unfortunately, anesthesia still contributes to major complications and deaths, and systematic anesthesia is needed to improve the quality of anesthesia care through “refinement or advancement” of technology, equipment, education, and professional development. For these reasons, this class is conducting research on the development of veterinary anesthesia-related equipment, advanced regional anesthesia, critical care anesthesia monitoring, anesthesia emergency treatment, and educational model development.
