neuro-active steroid anesthetic
IV for induction
IM for chemical restraint in cats
give slowly to prevent apnea and cardiac depression

blood gas partition
indication of the speed of induction, changes in anesthetic depth, and recovery
MAC (minimum alveolar concentration)
the measure of the potency
vapor pressure
the property that determines the type of vaporizer
(precision vs non-precision)
high vapor pressure
low blood gas partition coefficient
best choice for mask inductions because less irritating to tissue and less pungent order
recommended use at 2.5% to 4%
highest vapor pressure
highest minimum alveolar concentration
lowest blood gas partition coefficient
requires a special precision vaporizer
an emotional state characterized by anxiety, depression, or unease
lowering the pain threshold resulting in less stimulation required to produce pain
multimodel analgesia
the use of 2 or more analgesic drugs to alter more than one phase of the pain pathway
opioid agonist-antagonist
behavior signs of pain in dogs
uninterested in surroundings
drug used to reverse the effects of buprenorphine
most effective analgesic
is a non-opiate
activity at the my receptor
used for mild to moderate pain especially when the NSAIDs are contraindicated that can be administered orally
You are running anesthesia on a 4 yr Boston and the readings fro the Doppler are constantly below 80mmHg.
What is the term to describe the patient's condition?
patients with increased risk to anesthesia
nothing, this is an acceptable HR for this patient
You are running anesthesia on a 32kg, 7 yr, mixed breed with PE WNL (HR 100, RR 20, T 101F). During anesthesia the HE maintains between 88 and 92. What do you do?
the patient is too light
Vet made their first incision and the HR increases to from 88 to 120 bpm, RR increases 12 to 29 and BP is SAP:150, MAP:100, DAP 80.
What is the likely cause for these changes?
is an inotropic drug that increases the force of myocardial contractions
assess anesthetic depth
your patient becomes hypotension
what is your FIRST step?
a 7 yr doberman under anesthesia suddenly becomes apnic
inform the vet
check the HR
ensure O2 flow is adequate (check the flowmeter and tank pressure)
ensure the airway is not obstructed
are more prone to
anticholinergics on ruminants
IV sedation
is virtually impossible in healthy pigs
cattle require 1/10 the dose of xylazine than horses
because they are much more sensitive
"double drip" in large anima
guaifenesin and ketamine
using a stylette
helps to intubate calves and pigs
recover ruminants in
sternal recumbency
PE is difficult in swine because
-difficult to restrain
-best to observe RR rate and character from a distance
-blood draws and assessment of cards function are difficult to impossible to assess
IV placement in swine
treatment of porcine stress syndrome
-deliver oxygen
-give dantrolene
-stop anesthsia
LRS given to SMAMS
should be warmed to body temp to avoid hypothermia
use glycopyrrolate in rabbits
because rabbits have high levels of atropines
so atropine is ineffective
because eye position does not change
you can't assess anesthetic depth with the eyes in rodents
SMAMS anesthetizes with injectables
should be given O2 because most anesthetics depress respiration
they will not eat or drink
if post-op pain is not alleviated in rabbits
do not withhold food and water from rabbits and rodents
because they do not vomit and it may lead to dehydration
does not function high enough
most monitoring equipment is no designed for rodents and rabbits because it
when intubating rabbits
-needs to loose chew reflex
-lyrngoscope/otoscope can be helpful to visualize the larynx
-uncuffed tubes are preferred
inhalants are often chose to induce SMAMS because
simple and convenient
rapid recovery
with a tube placed in the esophagus
the unidirectional valve doesn't move
when a patient is ready to intubate
-relaxed (not lost) jaw tone
-decreased/absecent swallow reflex
-lowest concentration and which 50% of patients show no pain response
-used to determine average vaporizer setting
-measures potency
surgical plane
1.5 x MAC
cause muscle relaxation
provide analgesia
provide sedation in healthy patients only
an inhalant anesthetic with a low MAC
is considered to be more potent and therefore requires a lower vaporizer setting
administration of acepromazine
may lead to vasodilation which may lead to hypotension
adaptive pain
promotes survival by preventing injury and by promoting healing of the injured body part
QRS complex
is produced during ventricular depolarization
T wave
ventricular repolarization
P wave
atrial depolarization
HR is
cardiac output x stroke volume
Stage II
excitement stage
when still conscious and having involuntary movements
respiratory acidoses
is a condition that occurs when the lungs can't remove enough of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by the body. Excess CO2 causes the pH of blood and other bodily fluids to decrease, making them too acidic.
ventricular fibrillation
is a heart rhythm problem that occurs when the heart beats with rapid, erratic electrical impulses. This causes pumping chambers in your heart (the ventricles) to quiver uselessly, instead of pumping blood
ECG placement
a normal rhythm that is interrupted by 1 or more wide and bizarre QRS complex's
PaO2 < 80mmHg
indicates hypoxemia in anesthetized patients
2nd degree heart block
lone P wave

be sure to rinse the mouth to prevent aspiration of feed during intubation
IVC used in average horse
14g 15" OTN
placed in the jugular
to intubate a horse
extend the neck and head
pull tongue to the side
insert mouth gag
