Thanks Tobey Hospital !

The Animal Care staff is very grateful to the generous donation of a Narkomed anesthesia unit from Tobey Hospital and particularly for the help from Robert Casmira to coordinate this effort.  This fully functional unit, while no longer the state-of-the-art for human anesthesia, is more advanced then the vast majority of veterinary units and has multiple anesthesia maintenance options including isoflurane, sevoflorane, and desflorane.  The unit incorporates anesthetic patient monitoring and even has a ventilator.  This is a key component to the veterinary diagnostic and therapy suite for the  marine animal stranding hospital which is nearing completion.  Anesthesia is necessary for surgical procedures and some mildly invasive medical diagnostic and therapy procedures for stranded marine mammals and sea turtles.narcomed anesthesia machine
