Sample text

This practice can easily result in mixtures of two anesthetics and misidentifying the contents of the vaporizer. Vaporizers should always be clearly labeled and only contain the designated anesthetic (Dorsch and Dorsch, 1994). B. Molecular Weight All of the inhaled anesthetics have similar molecular weights with the exception of nitrous oxide and ether (Table I). Because of this fact the milliliters of vapor produced by 1 ml of liquid anesthetic is also similar (Table II). The volume of gaseous anesthetic formed from 1 ml of liquid anesthetic can be calculated from the gas laws (Linde, 1971).

Delivery of a controlled anesthetic concentration is necessary for safe anesthesia. Stable anesthetic levels are easily produced within 10 min of the start of anesthesia. Halothane causes respiratory depression which is dose dependent. At deep anesthetic levels, ventilation becomes inadequate. This limits anesthetic delivery if the animal is spontaneously ventilating, but spontaneous respiration should not be used to regulate anesthetic depth. Halothane causes direct depression of myocardial muscle and relaxation of vascular smooth muscle.
