More and more veterinary practices are now able to measure blood gases and acid-base values “in house”. This webinar aims to give the participant a guide on how to best utilise blood gas and acid-base analysis in general practice. After an introductory overview of basic acid-base and blood gas physiology, a practical approach to analysing the measured values will be discussed, including “typical scenarios” you might encounter in practice.
