Sayaka Okushima

Sayaka graduated from The Royal Veterinary College in 2009 and subsequently undertook a rotating internship, followed by a 3 year residency in a referral centre in the UK during which she visited other institutions in the UK, Belgium, Switzerland and France. Joining the team at Pride Veterinary Centre in 2016, she gained the Diploma of the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia the same year. Sayaka is interested in reducing the pain through use of locoregional blocks or systemic analgesic drug sand and likes the challenge of managing difficult cases, such as open chest surgeries and craniotomies. Reducing stress for the pet throughout their visit is also a key area of interest for her. She also sits on the IVC Evidensia Ethnic Diversity Scholarship Board advising on the ethnic diversity Scholarship initiative, support the ethnic diversity veterinary community and our future scholars, such as a mentoring scheme and support for student societies.

Lecture Synopsis;

The lecture strips inhalational anaesthesia to the basics, going through the different breathing systems and how the choice of breathing system influences fresh gas flow. Good understanding of the basics will allow you to reduce flow, which maximises economy (and saves money) and reduces pollution. Your understanding of how to manage inhalational anaesthesia will not only help reduce carbon emission, but also hone your skills to titrate the gases to your patients’ need and provide a more stable anaesthesia.

Learning Points;

– Further understand the basics of flow rate

– Understand different inhalational anaesthesia

– Begin to understand titrating inhalational gases to your patients
