Maud-Aline Chesnel, Francesco Aprea, R Eddie Clutton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A traumatic pneumothorax and severe hemorrhage were present in a mare with a large thoracic wall defect, lung perforation, and multiple rib fractures. General anesthesia was induced to allow surgical exploration. We describe the anesthetic technique, and discuss the management of the ventilatory, hemodynamic, and metabolic disturbances encountered.
