This review describes the beneficial effects of the use of epidural drugs for pre-emptive analgesia, intraoperative analgesia with an inhalant-sparing effect, and prolonged postoperative analgesia.Expand
Morbidity and mortality associated with anesthetic management in small animal veterinary practice in Ontario.
During 1993, 66 small animal practices participated in a prospective study to evaluate the incidence and details of anesthetic-related morbidity and mortality. Considering a total of 8,087 dogs andExpand
Epidural morphine reduces halothane MAC in the dog
Morphine, 0.1 mg · kg−1 was administered epidurally on two different occasions to ten dogs to determine the effect of two different volumes of saline dilution, 0.13 and 0.26 ml · kg−1, on the minimumExpand
Effects of oxymorphone and hydromorphone on the minimum alveolar concentration of isoflurane in dogs.
OBJECTIVES To quantify the change in the minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) of isoflurane (ISO) associated with oxymorphone (OXY) or hydromorphone (HYDRO) in dogs. DESIGN Randomized crossoverExpand
Comparison of arterial pressure waveform analysis with the lithium dilution technique to monitor cardiac output in anesthetized dogs.
OBJECTIVE To assess agreement between arterial pressure waveform-derived cardiac output (PCO) and lithium dilution cardiac output (LiDCO) systems in measurements of various levels of cardiac outputExpand
Effects of saffan on cardiopulmonary function in healthy cats.
The effects of saffan on cardiopulmonary function were evaluated in eight healthy adult cats. Measured values were cardiac output by thermodilution, heart rate by electrocardiogram, arterial bloodExpand
Intraosseous cannulation and drug administration for induction of anesthesia in chickens.
Twenty-four chickens were randomly assigned to one of three treatments (ketamine, 30 mg/kg; thiopental, 20 mg/kg; saline, 0.8 mL). Baseline data (heart rate, respiratory rate, systolic bloodExpand
Hydromorphone: a cost-effective alternative to the use of oxymorphone.
Cardiopulmonary effects of hypercapnia during controlled intermittent positive pressure ventilation in the horse.
The cardiopulmonary effects of eucapnia (arterial CO2 tension [PaCO2] 40.4 +/- 2.9 mm Hg, mean +/- SD), mild hypercapnia (PaCO2, 59.1 +/- 3.5 mm Hg), moderate hypercapnia (PaCO2, 82.6 +/- 4.9 mm Hg),Expand
