Abstract

Controlled mechanical ventilation (CMV) is routinely used in equine anaesthesia, with many different options available to mechanically deliver breaths. The complexity of respiratory pathophysiology in anaesthetised horses and the wide range of devices available is described in this scoping review. The first part of the review outlines basic equine respiratory physiology and pathophysiology during anaesthesia to illustrate what makes horses prone to inefficient gas exchange and ventilation when they are recumbent. The difference between spontaneous ventilation and CMV is reviewed and basic considerations of CMV are explored in more detail.
