Blomster, Tova, 2014. Akutvårdsavdelning och intensivvårdsavdelning - utformning, arbetsuppgifter och vad behöver finnas på plats?. First cycle, G2E. Skara: SLU, Dept. of Animal Environment and Health (until 231231)



Animals can be ill and need veterinary care for many reasons. The conditions can be more or less emergent, some can even be life-threatening. When an animal is in a life-threatening condition you can save the animals life just by having the right equipment near-by and ready to be used. This literature-study help you, as an active working veterinary nurse, with which these conditions are that can show up in your emergency ward and what you should have near-by to give animals with acute life-threatening conditions the care they need. The author also looked at work tasks at the emergency ward and found out that in Sweden it is not defined who can and/or should execute them.
Interviews were also done with nine of the largest small-animal hospitals in Sweden to compare the studies found with the Swedish emergency wards. The comparison was about which diagnostic equipment, monitoring apparatus and medicine they have near-by at their emergency ward compared to what the studies about the emergent conditions say you should have near-by to save the animals life. The small-animal hospitals interviewed in this study all had most of the things the literature said you should have nearby, with some exceptions.
