OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and functionality of intra-carotid wireless device implantation in ponies, and to investigate its short-term complications. STUDY DESIGN Prospective preliminary study. ANIMALS Five mixed breed, adult, intact male ponies weighing 104 +/- 28.8 kg (mean +/- SD) underwent surgery. Arterial blood pressure data were(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare hemodynamic variables during, and recovery quality following, anesthesia for feline blood donation using intramuscular ketamine-midazolam-butorphanol (KMB) versus inhaled sevoflurane in oxygen (SEV). STUDY DESIGN Prospective blinded, randomized, crossover study. ANIMALS Twenty healthy, client-owned, mixed breed cats, aged 4-8 years,(More)
To compare different volumes of injectate using electrostimulator (ES)-guided and blind brachial plexus blockade (BPB) techniques in dogs. Prospective, randomised, blinded study. Fifty-eight healthy adult purpose-bred beagle dogs. Animals were randomised into 4 groups based on the volume of methylene blue 0.1 per cent administered for BPB, three using ES(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship between tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) and oxygen delivery (D˙O2) during hypoxemia and hyperoxemia. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, randomized study. ANIMALS Eight purpose-bred Beagle dogs. METHODS Dogs were anesthetized with isoflurane, ventilated to eucapnia, and instrumented for thermodilution cardiac output,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate tissue oxygen saturation (Sto2) by use of near-infrared spectroscopy in experimental acute hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation in dogs. ANIMALS 14 healthy adult purpose-bred Beagles. PROCEDURES Dogs were anesthetized with isoflurane via facemask, anesthesia was maintained with propofol and rocuronium bromide, and dogs were(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether rostral extension of the hind limbs increases the cranio-caudal dorsal interlaminar distance between the seventh lumbar vertebra and the sacral bone (LS distance) in sternally recumbent anesthetized dogs. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical study. ANIMALS Eighteen dogs (eight neutered males, three intact males, six spayed(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare isoflurane, sevoflurane and desflurane for inhalant anesthesia in red-tailed hawks (Buteo jamaicensis) in terms of the speed and characteristics of induction; cardiovascular and respiratory parameters while anesthetized; and speed and quality of recovery. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, cross over, randomized experimental study. ANIMALS(More)
