Assisted ventilation

Print E-mail

In some cases, animals that come to the emergency centre are not able to breathe very well on their own. We are on-standby to provide emergency treatment, which may include oxygen therapy or mechanical ventilation (life support). Oxygen can be given to animals via a face mask (shown), nasal prongs that sit in the nostrils, nasal catheter (tube in the nostril), or a dedicated oxygen cage. In severe cases, were are able to offer assisted ventilation (IPPV). This is a type of life-support, whereby a machine breathes for the animal (our T-bird AVSIII mechanical ventilator is shown below). Ventilation is sometimes needed in cases of tick paralysis, snake bite, or other respiratory disease.
