Wet Lab #5: Rodent Intubation – Morning Session

Completed
Wet Lab #5: Rodent Intubation – Morning Session

Date: Wednesday, September 14, 2022
Time: 8:00 am PT
Duration: 240 Minutes
Room: UCSD

In this wet lab we will be covering intubation of the mouse and rat.  We will utilize Kent Scientific’s endotracheal kits including their intubation stands, fiber optic lights, vaporizers, and ventilators.  Students can expect to learn identification of the appropriate anatomy, suitable supplies, and equipment for rodent intubation.  In addition to this, we will share several approaches along with troubleshooting tips and tricks learned over many years of trial and error.  This wet lab is a great opportunity to add this very challenging and highly desired technique to your resume.  Mastering of rodent intubation will allow the expansion of you and your facilities’ capabilities and the ability to offer complex rodent surgeries, as well as intratracheal dosing for specific therapeutic targets.

Course Fee – $250.00 per session

Cerebral Oxygenation Monitoring in Rats Under Isoflurane Anesthesia

Cerebral Oxygenation Monitoring in Rats Under Isoflurane Anesthesia

Date: Thursday, September 15, 2022
Time: 3:00 pm
Introduction: Although monitoring of vital signs in small lab animals is critical to successful anesthetic outcomes, reliable measurement of the vital signs is challenging due to their size. To this end, we are developing a miniaturized optical imaging device based on the Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) technique for noninvasive measurement of the brain and peripheral tissue oxygenation and perfusion. Our goal is to develop a device to support safe and reliable anesthesia monitoring in small lab animals to improve animal welfare, ensure successful outcomes, and create reproducible research, which will ultimately aide in better knowledge of the living systems to enhance […]
Refinement of Minipig Surgical Procedures

Refinement of Minipig Surgical Procedures

Date: Thursday, September 15, 2022
Time: 9:30 am
The importance of refinement does not need to be discussed; however, it is equally important to share the advances made with the community. At times individual refinements might be small and of little impact but over time they add up and improve a procedure considerably. In this presentation the advancements of surgical procedures performed in Göttingen Minipigs over the last few years are summed up and discussed. The following procedures are addressed: LVP Telemetry by left sided Thoracotomy: This procedure has ben refined in a way that with larger Minipigs only one incision is necessary. With other adjustments we brought down […]
Surgical Anesthetic Preparation in the Juvenile NHP

Surgical Anesthetic Preparation in the Juvenile NHP

Date: Friday, September 16, 2022
Time: 9:30 am
Due to the high demand for NHP’s as research models, and the disruptions that Covid 19 created amongst the suppliers of NHP’s, we have been dealing with a downward trend in the range of body weights in our surgical animals. 4 to 5 years ago, the average size of an NHP that we would be performing a surgical procedure on was around 3.5 kgs. Now, we are routinely performing major surgical procedures on animals from 1.5 kgs to 2.5 kgs. These smaller animals are technically juveniles and they can have different anesthetic needs. This change in size of the animal can […]
