Patient-specific tools and checklists
Banfield’s tools are designed to assist you during anesthetic procedures and treatments.
Use this calculator to guide in selecting personal anesthesia equipment, fluid and oxygen rates, and medications for every phase of anesthesia, including emergency situations.
Note: The dosage calculator only mentions medications used in Banfield hospitals.
Anesthesia machine checklist
Follow and complete this checklist before every general anesthesia procedure.
Note: The machine checklist only mentions machines used in Banfield hospitals. If your machines differ, it may be useful as a template to create your own checklist.
Established guidelines from pre-anesthesia to recovery
Help your veterinary team improve concordance with Banfield’s established guidelines for anesthesia procedures.
A complete evaluation should entail a physical examination, a review of patient history, clinical pathology testing and determination of ASA status. Use this outline of key procedural and reference materials to get the support you need during the clinical decision process.
Monitoring job aid
Use this job aid to help your team capture key information during each procedure and keep quality medical record documentation.
CPR poster for urgent intervention
We recommend keeping charts and other resuscitation aids accessible and visible in areas where CPA may occur. Print this poster and display it in procedure areas and surgery suites as initial guides for urgent intervention.
CPA and ALS (Advanced Life Support)
Cognitive aids (checklists, algorithms, and dosing charts) have been shown to improve compliance with CPR guidelines. Use this job aid to help you deliver Cardiopulmonary Arrest care and Advanced Life Support in the event of an emergency.
