AAHA Anesthesia Safety and Monitoring Guidelines Certificate

Unlock better anesthetic outcomes

Boost the quality of anesthetic care and gain the knowledge you need to build trust with pet owners.

AAHA Anesthesia Safety and Monitoring Guidelines Certificate is designed to help veterinary teams stay up to date with best practices and develop comprehensive approaches to anesthetic care. Through competency-based learning objectives based on our trusted, peer-reviewed 2020 AAHA Anesthesia and Monitoring Guidelines for Dogs and Cats, you can improve your skillset and communication techniques for better anesthetic outcomes and client compliance.

  • Trustworthy content: valuable guidance based on AAHA’s expert-developed, non-biased, and trustworthy guidelines.
  • Ensure quality care: lead your team in delivering quality care and ensuring a safe, smooth anesthetic process every time.
  • Be a champion: sharpen your skills and develop team-based approaches through competency-based learning and real-life scenarios.

Stay ready with refined client communication and highly trained staff.

No area in the practice depends more on education than anesthesia. Teams must understand how crucial their role is in helping ensure patients’ comfort and safety.

Proactive patient care starts at the patient’s home before the appointment and continues after a patient returns home. So, every member of the team has a responsibility to engage in informed conversations with clients about expectations, potential risks, and the team's dedication to reducing these risks. This keeps the anesthetic experience as safe and stress-free as possible for your patients, clients, and team.

Reaching new heights — together.

By the end of the course, you’ll be ready to commit to strengthening the bridge between pet owner and anesthetic team by empowering team members through education and creating an atmosphere of mutual trust and understanding.

Invest in yourself and your team – become an anesthesia champion and feel your confidence soar as you help ensure safer, smoother anesthetic procedures.
