ABSTRACT
In practice, anaesthetic monitoring is normally carried out by trained veterinary nurses, although veterinary surgeons are ultimately responsible for the safety of their patients and should be fully aware of the monitoring methods available. This two-part review article considers the evidence for monitoring anaesthetised small animals in a clinical setting and highlights the current veterinary recommendations, comparing them to the human anaesthesia standards of care. The monitoring modalities are considered in light of the physiological parameters they are intended to measure, highlighting the relevance to anaesthesia and their usefulness in clinical practice. Practical examples are given throughout, emphasising how monitors can warn of physiological and equipment deterioration. Part one outlines the available approaches to basic and advanced central nervous system and cardiovascular system monitoring, emphasising the practical aspects as well as introducing more advanced concepts. Part two will consider respiratory system and temperature monitoring.
