“One of the things I liked best about this book was the diminished emphasis on the ‘cookbook’ or ‘rule book’ approach to anesthesia and a willingness to convince the reader by means of reasoned argument why a particular course of action should be taken. “Small Animal Anesthesia and Analgesia fulfills its intended purpose of being a quick review for veterinary students or a rapid reference for busy practitioners. It is succinct and concise without dumbing down the subject….The fundamentals of traditional subjects are adhered to, whereas recent or recently resurrected modalities are expanded on. The equipment overview is concise. Often a daunting subject in specialized texts, this topic is crystallized into information relevant to the immediate needs of users.
The whys and wherefores of judicious monitoring and support are emphasized, and the pros, cons, and vagaries of different monitoring modalities and support variables are discussed. Ventilation, an important aspect of anesthesia that is too often left to chance in clinical practice, is demystified. The chapter on preoperative preparation expands on a subject that is too often glossed over but is as critical to outcome as is the surgical procedure itself. The use of agents for perioperative sedation, analgesia, and anesthesia is thoroughly discussed, allowing users to make an informed decision regarding the choice of options available for a heterogeneous patient population.” – Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2008 This is a useful and concise reference. It does not attempt to compete with the larger and more comprehensive references … but rather complements them. This is a nice compact book to have on your shelf whether you are a seasoned practitioner in small animal practice or a new graduate…. would also be useful for veterinary technicians and technician students, anesthesia residents and researchers that may be adminstering anesthesia.” – Doody’s Book Reviews, November 2008
A small animal anesthesia machine is specifically designed to safely deliver inhalant anesthesia—usually isoflurane or sevoflurane—to small animals such as mice and rats. Kent Scientific’s vet anesthesia machine offers precisely controlled concentration of anesthesia to maximize the safety of both animals and laboratory technicians.
R500 is designed for the laboratory who are looking for a cost-effective instrument in rodent surgeries. Featured with compact design, flexible operation, high accuracy vaporizer, the anesthesia machine is ideal for small animals within 7kg, like rats, mice, mouse, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats. More than 10,000 have been installed in research institutions and universities around the world, such as Yale University and Harvard University.
