Anaesthetic monitoring equipment for small animals

  1. Gabby Musk

    Gabby Musk graduated from Murdoch University in Perth, Australia, in 1995. After a period in mixed practice in Australia, she moved to Glasgow to undertake a threeyear residency in anaesthesia. She holds the RCVS certificate in veterinary anaesthesia and is currently studying for the European diploma in veterinary anaesthesia.


A WIDE variety of monitoring equipment is now available for use in anaesthetised small animal patients. However, the information produced is only of value if it can be correctly interpreted and acted upon, underlining the importance of the continued presence of a suitably trained person throughout the anaesthetic period. This article discusses the types of monitoring systems available, and gives guidance on how they may be employed effectively and how the resulting information can best be used to manage patients safely.
