Emergency medicine: fluid therapy - Dr Naomi Hansen 2 CPD Points


Intravenous fluid therapy would be one of the most prescribed therapeutics in the world of veterinary medicine and surgery, but how much do we actually know about prescribing this 'drug'. In theory, prescribing an intravenous fluid regimen should be no different to prescribing a course of analgesia or antibiotics. Naomi's working motto is 'do not harm' and when it comes to intravenous fluid therapy there are several tips and tricks that can be applied daily to help ensure we uphold this motto and avoid the detrimental effects of fluid overload.

Dr Naomi Hansen
I started my veterinary working life in mixed animal practice in Woodford and I quickly realised I was not destined for mixed animal practice. I moved to Canberra (my bf was at Duntroon training to be an officer so it seemed like the done thing to do) and started in a purpose built small animal practice (Kippax). I quickly realised that general practice was not my end game so I applied for an ECC residency at The University of Melbourne. I did not get the position so took it upon myself to drive to Melbourne and query their decision. They saw the error of their ways and gave me a locum position that grew to a residency position. I was in Melbourne three years at the Werribee Veterinary Clinic in their ECC department. I completed my ACVSc Memberships in ECC and a clinical Masters in Traumatic Brain Injury before applying to the USA matching program. I was matched with the University of Pennsylvania and moved there to start my training as an ECC specialist. Unfortunately this training was curtailed (I was hit by a car and ended up broken) and I returned to Australia for some recovery. Back in Australia, I pursued my Fellowships in ECC but the training was convoluted with no ECC specialists to train me in Australia at the time, so I aborted mission and returned to general practice. I have been back in general practice for the past 10 years but never lost my passion for ECC. The opening of AEC Noosa provided the motivation and opportunity for me to start again in ECC…. The future? maybe Fellowships….
