""The order Sphenisciformes consists of 18 species representing six genera. Penguins are flightless birds that possess highly specialized anatomical and physiological features suitable for their pelagic lifestyle. Most penguin species may be captured by hand. Penguins are relatively robust and can tolerate periods of restraint for noninvasive procedures; however, procedures must be planned so that they are performed quickly and efficiently, in order to reduce the risk of development of hyperthermia. The medial metatarsal vein is easily accessible in penguins, but may be small, and the wound site is easily contaminated by fecal pathogens from unsanitary conditions in a rookery. This chapter discusses techinques CX-5461 mw for endotracheal cAMP inhibitor intubation, and explains preanesthetic considerations. Inhalation anesthesia, using isoflurane or sevoflurane, is frequently used for induction and maintenance in penguins. The chapter describes conditions to be monitored under anesthesia. Gaseous anesthetic agents generally result in a more rapid recovery from anesthesia than injectable agents. ""Objective? To evaluate the stability and repeatability of measures of mechanical (nociceptive) thresholds in piglets and to examine potentially confounding factors when using a hand held algometer. Study design? Descriptive, prospective cohort. Animals? Forty-four piglets from four litters, weighing 4.6?��?1.0?kg Saracatinib (mean?��?SD) at 2?weeks of age. Methods? Mechanical thresholds were measured twice on each of 2?days during the first and second week of life. Data were analyzed using a repeated measures design to test the effects of behavior prior to testing, sex, week, day within week, and repetition within day. The effect of body weight and the interaction between piglet weight and behaviour were also tested. Piglet was entered into the model as a random effect as an additional test of repeatability. The effect of repeated testing was used to test the stability of measures. Pearson correlations between repeated measures were used to test the repeatability of measures. Variance component analysis was used to describe the variability in the data. Results? Variance component analysis indicated that piglet explained only 17% of the variance in the data. All variables in the model (behaviour prior to testing, sex, week, day within week, repetition within day, body weight, the interaction between body weight and behaviour, piglet identity) except sex had a significant effect (p?<?0.04 for all). Correlations between repeated measures increased from the first to the second week.</div>
