ISEA FERNANDEZ, Gerardo Alberto; RODRIGUEZ RODRIGUEZ, Ilsen Emérita; ISEA MORILLO, Ernesto Enrique  and  MONTERO URDANETA, Merilio Antonio. Using a low-cost anesthetic chamber as a didactic tool to explain the basics of general anesthesia to veterinary medicine students. Rev. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2008, vol.6, n.3, pp.57-66. ISSN 1692-7273.

A low-cost glass-assembled and easy to handle anesthetic chamber is presented, easy handling and cleaning, as a didactic manner to explain, by using mice, the basis of the inhaled general anesthesia to veterinary medicine students. The chamber, allows adequate dose administration of anesthetic, preserves life of animals and decreases exposure of teachers and students to anesthetics gases. Thus, it’s possible to explain in a didactic fashion the basic concepts of inhaled anesthesia, such as anesthetic concentration and solubility.

Keywords : Anesthetic chamber; mice; inhaled Anesthesia.
