BACKGROUND Signs of tachypnea after sedation of febrile horses with alpha2-agonists have been noted previously but have not been further investigated. OBJECTIVES To examine the effects of xylazine and detomidine on respiratory rate and rectal temperature in febrile horses and to investigate if either drug would be less likely than the other to cause changes in these variables. ANIMALS Nine febrile horses and 9 healthy horses were included in the study. METHODS Horses were randomly…

Antipyretic Effect of Clonidine in Intensive Care Unit Patients: A Nested Observational Study
TLDR
This report is the first of its kind in humans that demonstrates possible antipyretic properties of enteral clonidine in the critically ill intensive care unit patient.
Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of intravenous dexmedetomidine in the horse.
TLDR
Physiological, behavioral, and analgesic effects observed after dexmedetomidine administration were of short duration and Dexmedetamidine was quickly eliminated as indicated by the rapid decrease in plasma concentrations.
The comparative efficacy of nalbuphine and tramadol in controlling postoperative shivering in rabbits
Background: Postoperative shivering is a major dilemma in most major surgeries. It is a consequence of perioperative hypothermia, attributed to the use of obsolete anesthetic regiments being used in
A review of clinical approaches to antagonism of alpha2-adrenoreceptor agonists in the horse
TLDR
This review examines the current literature on the α2-adrenoceptor antagonists used in horses and makes recommendations on how to use these drugs safely in an attempt to prevent undesirable pharmacodynamic effects.
α2 Adrenergic Receptor-Mediated Inhibition of Thermogenesis
TLDR
Results indicate a potent inhibition of BAT and shivering thermogenesis by α2-AR activation in the rRPa, and suggest a therapeutic potential of α1 adrenergic receptor agonists for reducing potentially lethal elevations in body temperature during excessive fever.

Central nervous system regulation of brown adipose tissue.
TLDR
This review summarizes the understanding of the functional organization and neurochemical influences within the CNS networks that modulate the level of BAT sympathetic nerve activity to produce the thermoregulatory and metabolic alterations in BAT thermogenesis and BAT energy expenditure that contribute to overall energy homeostasis and the autonomic support of behavior.

Dose-related effects of detomidine on autonomic responses in the horse.
TLDR
Data indicate the uniqueness in autonomic response by the horse to alpha 2 adrenoreceptor stimulation, as well as the direction, time course, and dose-response relationship of detomidine on specific autonomic responses in the unanaesthetized horse.
Effects of xylazine on ventilation in horses.
TLDR
The temporal effects of xylazine on ventilatory function in horses should be considered in selecting a sedative when ventilation is inadequate or when pulmonary function testing is to be performed.
Modulation of respiratory rhythm by alpha 2-adrenoceptors in awake and anesthetized goats.
TLDR
The results suggest that stimulation ofalpha 2-adrenoceptors generally has an inhibitory effect on breathing in goats, and the disruption of ventilation with clonidine or guanabenz suggests that alpha 2- adrenoceptor agonists may play an important role in the control of central respiratory rhythm.
A comparison of the sedative effects of three alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists (romifidine, detomidine and xylazine) in the horse.
TLDR
The sedative effects of a new alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonist, romifidine, were compared with those of xylazine and detomidine and produced sedation similar to that of the other drug regimes.
Comparison of peripheral and core temperatures in anesthetized horses.
TLDR
Anesthesia-induced core heat redistribution develops with minimal effect on core temperature and rectal temperature can accurately reflect core temperature, which is similar to core temperature.
Comparison between thermoregulatory effects mediated by alpha 1- and alpha 2-adrenoceptors in normothermic and febrile rabbits.
TLDR
Results indicate that alpha 1- and alpha 2-adrenoceptor drugs' thermoregulatory actions are similar in event and suggest that both subtypes of alpha-adRenoceptor might be implicated functionally in a variety of thermoreGulatory processes.
Fever: Role of Pyrogens and Cryogens
TLDR
Before any cytokine or hormone can be characterized as an EP or EC (or, for that matter, as being involved in any of the acute phase responses), clearly established rules must be followed, which are patterned after the traditional criteria used by Koch to distinguish a pathogenic microorganism from a benign one.
Preoptic norepinephrine mediates the febrile response of guinea pigs to lipopolysaccharide.
TLDR
Results confirm that POA NE is pivotal in the development of LPS fever.
Intraperitoneal Administration of Bacterial Endotoxin Enhances Noradrenergic Neurotransmission in the Rat Preoptic Area: Relationship with Body Temperature and Hypothalamic‐Pituitary‐Adrenocortical Axis Activity
TLDR
The results show that an endotoxic challenge results in a highly differentiated response in brain neurotransmission, and postulate that the profound increase in preoptic noradrenergic neurotransmission may be related to the lipopolysaccharide‐evoked induction of fever and/or activation of the HPA axis.
