Anesthesia: Inhalation vs. Injectable
There are five basic considerations when choosing a method of anesthesia.
- Reduce the likelihood of animal loss
- Avoid interfering with research question
- Minimize the stress to animals
- Maintain a consistent plane of anesthesia through the duration of the procedure
- Have a fast and safe recovery at the end of anesthesia
Upon evaluation of a number of variables, inhalation anesthesia offers many advantages over traditional injectable anesthesia, as seen in the chart.
|Susceptibility to human error||Low||High|
|Stress to the animals||Low||High|
|Susceptibility to animal loss||Low||High|
|Recovery time for animals||Short||Long|
How It Works
The SmartFlow Anesthesia Suite’s sophisticated design ensures safe and easy anesthesia administration. Flow rates are fixed for each breathing device, eliminating complex calculations and adjustments during procedures as is common with injectable anesthesia as well as traditional inhalation anesthesia systems. Simply specify the concentration and which breathing devices need to be used, and the SmartFlow Anesthesia Suite does the rest.
- Oxygen flows from the Oxygen tank into the vaporizer
- Oxygen mixes with Isoflurane producing a specified concentration of gas anesthesia
- Gas anesthesia of a specified concentration flows out at the correct rate for each breathing device
- Gas anesthesia keeps mouse asleep during procedure
- Excess gas is captured by a charcoal filtration device
