Anesthetic complications in the horse.

Abstract Text

The basis for management of all complications is early recognition, preparation, and a problem-solving approach. Some anesthetic complications, such as equipment malfunction and injuries from endotracheal intubation or misplaced drug injections, are common to all animals and can be prevented almost entirely by careful management. Other problems, such as pulmonary dysfunction and cardiovascular depression, seem to occur more often in healthy horses than in healthy members of other domestic species. Postoperative myopathy-neuropathy, sometimes a devastating complication, seems to be peculiar to the horse, and its incidence has been linked to hypotensive inhalant anesthesia. Careful positioning and padding, monitoring of anesthetic depth, and treating of cardiovascular depression may prevent most cases of postanesthetic myopathy. Idiosyncratic drug reactions, such as MH, are entirely unpredictable and can be rapidly fatal unless recognized early and treated vigorously and specifically.
