A 9-year-old Percheron mare is presented for caesarean section due to clinical dystocia during labor. Xylazine was employed during preanaesthesia, followed by induction with ketamine and diazepam, while anaesthetic maintenance was obtained with isoflurane. The mare showed good recovery, however 24...

Abstract

Wick catheters were used to measure intracompartmental pressures of the extensor carpi radialis muscles and long heads of the triceps brachii muscles of 7 horses maintained under halothane anaesthesia during controlled ventilation. Horses were positioned in left lateral recumbency on a water bed...

Abstract

Six healthy adult horses were anaesthetized with halothane in oxygen for 3.5 hours on each of 2 occasions. Intermittent positive-pressure ventilation was used to maintain PaCO2 of 45-55 mm of Hg throughout both anaesthetic exposures. By regulating the inspired halothane concentration, a mean...

Abstract

A method for the evaluation of total plasma antihydroxyl and antiperferryl activity is described. This method was applied to horse plasma obtained during halothane anaesthesia. In horses suffering from post-anaesthethic myositis, a significant decrease in the antiperferryl activity was observed...
