Laboratory Animal Anaesthesia book cover

Laboratory Animal Anaesthesia

The additions and amendments to this new edition reflect developments in anesthetic practice and changes in our attitudes toward laboratory animal welfare. Standards of anesthesia for laboratory animals have increased greatly since the publication of the 2e, and the use of technically demanding procedures have become much more widespread. This new edition attempts to balance the need for additional information in these areas with the main goal of the first edition: the provision of an introductory text for new investigators.

Researchers, post docs and graduate students who utilize animals in biomedical research.
