This status, together with the temperament of the patient, is taken into account when formulating a protocol for using a tranquilizer/sedative alone or combined with an opioid. • ASA I animals are considered to be overall normal and healthy. • ASA II animals have mild to moderate systemic diseases. • ASA III animals have severe systemic disease that limits activity but is not incapacitating. • ASA IV animals have severe systemic disease that limits activity and is a constant threat to life. • ASA V animals are moribund and are not expected to survive more than 24 hours with or without intervention.

5 kg [10 lb]), 1 liter/minute of oxygen flow is usually adequate for anesthesia maintenance. • For a 1 kg Chihuahua, an oxygen flow rate of 500 ml is more than adequate when using a non-rebreathing circuit for anesthesia maintenance. CHANGES TO THE SPEED OF INHALANT ANESTHETIC UPTAKE DURING THE TRANSITION FROM INTRAVENOUS INDUCTION TO INHALANT MAINTENANCE • During the transition from IV induction to inhalant anesthetic maintenance, a higher oxygen flow rate and a higher vaporizer setting is required to change the anesthetic concentration within the rebreathing circuit quickly.

In addition, most anesthetic agents, especially isoflurane, sevoflurane, and desflurane, induce muscle relaxation, which further reduces the ability of the respiratory muscles to overcome the resistance of a rebreathing circuit and breathe properly. The advantages of a rebreathing circuit are reduced oxygen flow rate, which reduces the cost of inhalant anesthetic agent, and the preservation of heat and moisture from the patient. 40 CHAPTER 1 Equipment for inhalant anesthesia Ambu bags Key points relating to Ambu bags are listed below: • Using an Ambu bag (54) is an alternative method of providing positive pressure ventilation to an animal with either room air or enriched oxygen without using an anesthetic machine and a breathing circuit.
