Abstract

Background: Anaesthetic risk is composed of factors that can (e.g. hypothermia) and cannot (e.g. old age) be influenced. The maximal heat loss from a patient occurs in the first stadium of anaesthesia and it is easier to prevent hypothermia than reheat an animal. Objectives: The aim of the authors...

Abstract

The author reviews the general principles and the best methods of anaesthesia in rats, mice, hamsters, guineapigs, and chinchillas. Because of their small size, it is indispensable to know the exact body weight of laboratory animals. Before anaesthesia, it is important to get an accurate anamnesis...

Abstract

The guinea pig is a common animal model that is used in biomedical research to study a variety of systems, including hormonal and immunological responses, pulmonary physiology, corticosteroid response and others. However, because guinea pigs are evolutionarily a prey species, they do not readily...

Abstract

Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a life-threatening clinical syndrome of hypermetabolism involving the skeletal muscle. It is triggered in susceptible individuals primarily by volatile inhalational anesthetic agents and the muscle relaxant succinylcholine. MH affects humans, certain pig breeds, dogs, ...

Abstract

Induction of anaesthesia was performed by i/m injection of ketamine and xylazine. After tracheotomy further anaesthesia was performed with halothane/nitrous-oxide or with methoxyflurane/nitrous-oxide. Inhalation anaesthesia was performed with a closed-circuit system designed for this purpose. It...
