Anesthesia is one of the biggest marvels of modern medicine: a drug-induced reversible coma that allows us to perform invasive surgery, leaving the patient unaware and free of pain during the procedure. While scientists may not entirely understand the processes behind anesthesia, as a veterinarian or technician, you know the importance of monitoring respiration and exhaled CO2 in a patient under sedation, as it can prevent the occurrence of brain damage or anesthetic-induced hypoventilation.
When a client is entrusting you with the life of their precious pet, having CO2 anesthesia monitoring as part of your surgical protocol can ensure that you’ve done your due diligence in ensuring their pet’s safety and health.
At Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp. we have multiple options for CO2 monitoring. This innovative technology provides data management via PatientCare Viewer software, which can be viewed on any of our available veterinary monitors and telemetry options at Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp. If you’re interested in learning more about these potentially life-saving devices, know that we can offer you onsite training at your practice so you can feel confident with CO2 anesthesia monitoring with our devices.
