Two decades ago the first series of confidential enquiries into perioperative equine fatalities (CEPEF 1 and 2) were initiated (Johnston 1991). Only few risk factors were identified. CEPEF 3, a randomised control trial comparing halothane and the newer agent isoflurane followed.
Aims of the project
To assess perioperative fatalities and complications in horses:
- Describe the actual situation/status quo
- Identify Risk factors and their importance
- Identify areas of potential areas of improvement
Your contribution could help to identify safer standards in equine anaesthesia. Please contact us to join in.
