Introduction

Anesthesia plays an important role in animal experimental procedures. The outcome of a research may be greatly affected if it is not correctly executed; hence a proper and reliable method is always needed. The correct use of anesthetic machine in combination with anesthetic drugs helps in acheiving the desired outcome by researcher. Thus, acquiring skills in the techniques are of utmost essential for veterinarian, technician, researchers as well as students embarking on animal experiment which requires the use of anesthesia machine or anesthetic drugs.

One of the most important procedures in biomedical research is to properly anesthetize the animals used for an invasive procedure, to minimize pain during bleeding, and to ensure the survival and recovery of the animals. The objective of this workshop is to share the appropriate techniques and provide training required for rodents’ anesthesia.

Who should attend

Researchers, scientist, veterinarians, lecturers, animal technicians and post graduate students.

Workshop is limited to 25 participants (if exceeding 25, the venue may be changed).

Objectives

The objectives of this workshop are to:

  • introduce techniques of restraining rodents for intravenous inoculation.
  • familiarize and understand anesthetic agents used for rodents.
  • introduce the right methods for intravenous injection with 100% accuracy.
  • introduce a rapid and reliable method for administration of anesthetic agents and other drugs.
  • highlight the use of anesthesia machine for rodents anesthesia.
