Vet tech rambling
Update about the patient I was concerned about. Friday he went under for a neuter and to extract retained deciduous teeth. After an hour of anesthesia he went into cardiac arrest. We did CPR for four minutes before we got a pulse. 30 minutes later his breathing regulated. For 7 hours I was by his side monitoring him and stimulating him to get some kind of response. After 4 hours he started to respond to me pinching his toes. After hour 7 he was extubated. He was whining and moving his legs but remained in lateral recumbency. Sent to the 24 hour emergency clinic that night. Saturday had elevated liver enzymes and WBC. Hyperextension of the neck still lateral. Saturday night seizure. He passed away last night. :( sometimes being a vet tech isn’t very rewarding.
