OBJECTIVE To compare haemodynamic and respiratory variables during isoflurane-fentanyl (IF) and propofol-fentanyl (PF) anaesthesia for surgery in injured cats. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study. ANIMALS Thirty-three client-owned injured cats undergoing orthopaedic surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pre-anaesthetic medication(More)
The regional distribution of ventilation in conscious standing pregnant Shetland pony mares was investigated by Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT). Six ponies were repeatedly examined a minimum of four weeks prior to (antepartum, AP) until three weeks after parturition (postpartum, PP). From the cross-sectional ventilation image the ventral to dorsal(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of neuromuscular blockade with rocuronium bromide (rocuronium) in eighty dogs anaesthetised for a variety of surgical procedures. Rocuronium 0.3 or 0.6 mg/kg (G03 and G06) was administered intravenously (IV) and neuromuscular function was monitored with an acceleromyograph. Lag time (LT) was >1 min in(More)
Sixteen captive female red deer were successfully anesthetized to surgically implant a telemetry system. The deer were immobilized with (mean±SD) 1.79±0.29 mg/kg xylazine and 1.79±0.29 mg/kg tiletamine/zolazepam given intramuscularly with a dart gun. Anesthesia was maintained for 69±2 min using a total intravenous protocol with a catheter placed in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the onset and duration of neuromuscular blockade of rocuronium bromide and its associated haemodynamic effects at three doses in healthy horses. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, randomized experimental study. ANIMALS Seven adult horses aged 3-20 (mean 10.3) years and weighing 466 +/- 44 (mean +/- SD) kg. METHODS Horses were(More)
BACKGROUND This clinical study evaluated the speed of reversal of profound rocuronium block in ponies using sugammadex and investigated the differences in onset and recovery from block in three different muscle groups. METHODS Anaesthesia was induced and maintained with isoflurane in oxygen 100% in eight ponies. Neuromuscular monitoring was performed at(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate globe position, muscle relaxation and changes in ventilatory parameters after intravenous administration of 0.1 mg/kg rocuronium. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical study. ANIMAL STUDIED Sixteen dogs of different breeds, with a body weight of 22.1 +/- 13 kg and age of 5.6 +/- 2.8 years (mean +/- SD),(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the neuromuscular blocking and chronotropic effects of rocuronium bromide in cats anaesthetized for surgery. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical trial. ANIMALS Twenty-two healthy cats of mixed breed presented for ovariectomy (n = 13) or castration (n = 9). Mean body mass (+/-SD) was 3.6 +/- 0.65 kg and mean age was 10.25 +/- 2.63(More)
A 13-month-old Standardbred Colt had a recurrent hemangioma at the level of the coronary band. Multiple excisions had led to a nonhealing skin and hoof defect. Using 14 MV electrons, a total dose of 36 Gy was administered, given as six fractions of 6 Gy twice a week. Wound healing by second intention was achieved over the next 4 months and the colt began(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the doses of propofol required for insertion of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) with those for endotracheal intubation in sedated dogs. STUDY DESIGN Randomized prospective clinical study. Animals Sixty healthy dogs aged 0.33-8.5 (3.0 +/- 2.3, mean +/- SD) years, weighing 2.2-59.0 (23.4 +/- 13.6, mean +/- SD) kg, presented for elective(More)
