Anderson Sling Suspension System for Horses after General Anesthesia
Complications in the wake-up phase after general anesthesia in horses are common and often severe, like fractures of the legs, the pelvis etc. Much effort is made to develop system to decrease the risk in the recovery phase. The Anderson Sling Suspension System seems to be a good prevention for the horses, as this new study demonstrates.

This retrospecitve study describes a sling recovery system (Anderson Sling) for horses and to evaluate outcome of high-risk horses recovered from general anesthesia by a sling. 24 horses recovered from general anesthesia were included.

Complete medical and anesthetic records (1996–2003) for horses recovered from general anesthesia using the Anderson Sling system were evaluated retrospectively. Information retrieved included anesthetic protocol, surgical procedure, recovery protocol, recovery time, and quality of the recovery. Horses were recovered from anesthesia supported by the Anderson Sling in a standing position within a traditional padded equine recovery stall.

Results: Twenty-four horses had 32 assisted recoveries; 31 events were successful. No complications associated with the sling or recovery system protocol occurred. One horse was intolerant of the sling`s support and was reanesthetized and recovered successfully using head and tail ropes.

Thus, the Anderson Sling recovery system is an effective and safe way to recover horses that are at increased risk for injury associated with adverse events during recovery from general anesthesia. It should be considered for assisted recovery of equine patients from general anesthesia.

Septic keratitis - associated bacteria and antibiotic susceptibilitymembers
Septic keratitis is occasionally seen in various species. The aim of this study was to evaluate the most common bacterial pathogens associated with septic keratitis in veterinary patients from Switzerland. The second objective was to analyze antibiotic susceptibility test results of the identified bacterial pathogens. The third objective was to evaluate potential breed predispositions to septic keratitis. A very interesting study with results not only important for Switzerland!
