OBJECTIVE To determine the accuracy and precision of an oscillometric noninvasive blood pressure device as a predictor of invasive direct blood pressure in healthy anesthetized hypotensive and normotensive dogs. DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING University teaching hospital. ANIMALS Eight crossbred adult dogs. INTERVENTIONS Anesthesia(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether directly measured arterial blood pressure differs among anatomic locations and whether arterial blood pressure is influenced by body position. ANIMALS 33 client-owned dogs undergoing anesthesia. PROCEDURES Dogs undergoing anesthetic procedures had 20-gauge catheters placed in both the superficial palmar arch and the(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare two commonly used oscillometric technologies for obtaining noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP) measurements and to determine if there is a difference in agreement between these systems and invasive blood pressure (IBP) measurements. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, experimental study. ANIMALS Twenty adult laboratory dogs. METHODS Each dog(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare blood pressure measured noninvasively with an oscillometric device that involved use of a novel conical cuff and a traditional cylindrical blood pressure cuff. ANIMALS 17 adult hound-type dogs. PROCEDURES Dogs were anesthetized, and a 20-gauge, 1.5-inch catheter was inserted in the median sacral artery. The catheter was attached to(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the level of agreement between direct and indirect blood pressure measurements obtained from healthy Hispaniolan Amazon parrots (Amazona ventralis) anesthetized with isoflurane. DESIGN Validation study. ANIMALS 16 healthy adult Hispaniolan Amazon parrots. PROCEDURES Parrots were anesthetized, and a 26-gauge, 19-mm catheter was(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare palpation-guided with ultrasound-guided brachial plexus blockade in Hispaniolan Amazon parrots. STUDY DESIGN Prospective randomized experimental trial. ANIMALS Eighteen adult Hispaniolan Amazon parrots (Amazona ventralis) weighing 252-295 g. METHODS After induction of anesthesia with isoflurane, parrots received an injection of(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether veterinary-specific oscillometric blood pressure units yield measurements that are in good agreement with directly measured blood pressures in cats. DESIGN Evaluation study. ANIMALS 21 cats undergoing routine spaying or neutering. PROCEDURES A 24-gauge catheter was inserted in a dorsal pedal artery, and systolic,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if blood pressure measured with an ultrasonic Doppler flow detector (Doppler) is in good agreement with directly measured blood pressures in anesthetized cats. DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING University veterinary teaching hospital. ANIMALS Thirty-nine cats undergoing routine neutering. INTERVENTIONS Cats were(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the accuracy of an ultrasound velocity dilution cardiac output (UDCO) method, compared with that of the lithium dilution cardiac output (LiDCO) method, for determination of cardiac output (CO) in juvenile horses with experimentally induced hypovolemia. ANIMALS 12 anesthetized 2- to 6-month-old horses. PROCEDURES For each anesthetized(More)
