GAS ANAESTHESIA FOR ALL SURGICAL PROCEDURES AND SPECIALIZED DIAGNOSTIC EXAMINATIONS


Gas anaesthesia is considered the safest type of anaesthesia at the present time in small animal practice. This type of anaesthesia allows accurate delivery of anaesthetic drugs to the patient. The amount can easily be adjusted according to the specific needs of the patient and surgeon. This is preferable to injectable anaesthesia, which cannot be regulated so easily, furthermore the effects of injectable drugs are more difficult to predict. In emergency cases, when cardiorespiratory arrest is encountered, an anaesthetic machine with oxygen can be life saving. There are certain surgeries which cannot be performed without gaseous anaesthesia, for example repair of diaphragmatic hernias and thoracic surgery. Animals which have been under the gas anaesthesia have a much faster and smoother recovery than those which have received injectable anaesthetics.
