Noninvasive mechanical ventilation of mice by using a balloon-tipped cannula.

Abstract

Cardiovascular research in mouse models can lead to respiratory insufficiency with the need for temporary mechanical ventilation to reduce mortality. We developed a noninvasive method for brief ventilation in which a balloon-tipped cannula is inserted into the oral cavity of the mouse. The rubber balloon is constructed in such a way that it becomes inflated… (More)
