Equine Anesthesia is a comprehensive reference describing the basic physiology, pharmacology, art and practice of equine anesthesia. The second edition follows the same basic organization of the first but is substantially different in appearance and ease of information retrieval. The intent of the new edition is to provide a reliable and comprehensive resource for equine practitioners (surgeons, technicians, support personnel) who are involved in the everyday care of horses that require anesthesia, are in pain, or require special emergency care. It provides a detailed review of the respiratory and cardiovascular physiology of the horse and a complete description of all aspects of the use of the drugs used to produce anesthesia, treat pain, and manage complications or situations in horses that require emergency treatment, including anesthesia. It brings together all the essential aspects required to prepare, conduct, and monitor the administration of drugs in order to produce safe and effective anesthesia, treat pain, monitor, and perform emergency/critical care treatment. It is the most comprehensive, referenced, and detailed book available on these subjects, addressing the needs and concerns of practitioners in both hospital and field settings. It is also an important resource and teaching tool for students who will enter equine-exclusive or mixed-animal practices during and after their formal veterinary training.
