Attane™

Attane Inhalation anaesthetic for use in horses, dogs, cats, small mammals, reptiles and ornamental birds. Restricted Veterinary Medicine (RVM). Only available under veterinary authorisation.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Use only in a vapouriser suitable for Isoflurane with an appropriate anaesthetic circuit.

Premedication - Tranquilizers, sedatives and analgesics can be used with care. They will reduce the concentration of Isoflurane required for induction and maintenance. Muscle relaxation may be adequate for intra-abdominal operations at normal levels of anaesthesia.

Induction - Surgical anaesthesia by mask induction is achieved in 5 to 10 minutes.

Maintenance - The concentration of vapour necessary to maintain anaesthesia is much less than is required to induce the patient. Attane can also be used to maintain anaesthesia after induction with a suitable injectable agent.

PRESENTATION

If an animal is already anaesthetized with Isofluranethen particular care should be exercised if administering amidazolam-ketamine combination. Consideration should be given toanalgesic requirements of patient before recovery from anaesthesiatakes place. Isoflurane has been safely used for anaesthesia during Caesarean section in dogs and cats. However, data concerning its use in pregnant, breeding or lactating animals is not available.
