We have two anesthetic machines.
Both are equipped with patient monitors that allow us to hear and visualize (on a screen and printable copies) an electro cardiogram (ECG), respiration and also pulse-ox meters that monitor a patient’s pulse rate and blood oxygen saturation.
- We also monitor the pet’s body temperature throughout each procedure.
- These allow us to chart all vitals during surgery.
The anesthetics (Isoflurane and Sevoflurane) that are used in the machines are the same that are used in hospitals on adults and children.
