Your Pet’s Safety is Our Number One Concern!

Anasazi Animal Clinic features state-of-the-art anesthetic monitoring equipment with the most reliable and accurate measurements of important parameters affecting your pet’s anesthesia during dental and surgical procedures. We know that anesthesia is a scary prospect and we take every step to ensure the safety and well being of your animal.¬†Below are a list of measurements and readings that are recorded throughout an anesthetic procedure.

ECG (Electrocardiogram)

Continuous reading of the heart rate and rhythm, so that any abnormalities can be addressed in a timely manner
Especially critical with any history of heart disease

SPO2 (Oxygen saturation)

Continuous reading of oxygen availability to the tissues of the body
Important monitor of adequate breathing and lung function during anesthesia

CO2 (Carbon dioxide expelled)

Important monitor of adequate breathing and lung function during anesthesia

Blood pressure

Monitored to ensure that blood, with oxygen and nutrients, is being delivered to the organs throughout the body for normal function during anesthesia and afterward

Body temperature

Hypothermia is always a concern with anesthesia and ensuring adequate body temperature is important for appropriate anesthetic metabolism and quick recovery from anesthesia
