Medetomidine and dexmedetomidine (medetomidine’s active isomer) are licensed α2-adrenergic agonists in small animal practice. They can be administered intravenously, intramuscularly, subcutaneously and transmucosally. When bound to the α2-adrenoceptors in an animal’s central nervous system, they produce profound sedation and analgesia. The efficacy of atipamezole, a recently introduced α2-adrenoceptor antagonist in reversing medetomidine-induced effects in dogs was investigated in a clinical study. Dogs from eight Finnish small-animal hospitals were sedated with µg/kg dose of the α2-agonist medetomidine i.m. In the first part of the study (n = ), a randomized, double-blind design with respect to the dose of Cited by:
The animals were then given atipamezole-HCl (ATI) mg/kg for reversal at different times after injection of MED/KET and the effects of the antagonist were evaluated. Subcutaneous administration of MED/KET induced complete immobilization in all 20 animals, and the highest dose was considered suitable for major by: M. D.

Medetomidine is a synthetic drug used as both a surgical anesthetic and is often used as the hydrochloride salt, medetomidine hydrochloride, a crystalline white is an α2 adrenergic agonist that can be administered as an intravenous drug solution with sterile water.. It was developed by Orion Pharma. It is approved for dogs in the United States, and distributed in the. Antagonistic effects of atipamezole (ATI), flumazenil (FLU) and 4-aminopyridine (4AP) alone and in various combinations after administration of medetomidine–midazolam–ketamine (MED–MID–KET) were evaluated in cats. Animals were anaesthetised with MED (50 μg/kg), MID ( mg/kg) and KET (10 mg/kg) given by: 3.

The use of medetomidine (5–10 μg/kg BW) and butorphanol (– mg/kg BW), morphine (– mg/kg BW) or hydromorphone ( mg/kg BW) is highly promising for sedation for diagnostic procedures and premedication for routine elective surgery in small animals, providing excellent sedation, muscle relaxation, and analgesia (4,18,29,31).
The potential reversal of medetomidine by using atipamezole Cited by: 5. Atipamezole (Antisedan ®) is an α-2 adrenergic antagonist labeled for use as a reversal agent for the sedative medetomidine.
It has been used successfully in the treatment of amitraz toxicosis to reverse CNS depression, bradycardia, GI stasis and hyperglycemia (Grossman, ; Gwaltney-Brant, ). It has been replaced by dexmedetomidine in domestic dog and cat anesthesia, because medetomidine is currently no longer available in a small animal formulation.
Medetomidine is a commonly used supplemental drug combined with ketamine and other injectable anesthetic agents for use in great apes, 22–24 nonhuman primates, and carnivores.
It is an important constituent of BAM (Wildlife. Medetomidine and atipamezole in small animal practice. (PMID) Abstract Citations ; BioEntities ; Related Articles ; External Links ; Fargetton X, Vähä-Vahe T. Research and Development Department, Norden Europe, Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium.
Tijdschrift Voor. Medetomidine (10, 20, 40 μg/kg) was used as a premedicant before thiopentone, halothane and nitrous oxide anaesthesia in 60 dogs undergoing a variety of elective surgical and diagnostic procedures at the University of Liverpool Small Animal Hospital. The efficacy of the sedation produced by the three dose groups was evaluated using a sedation scoring system which is by: use of medetomidine and atipamezole in laboratory animals Thus MED/KET cannot be recommended as a short duration reversible anaesthetic in the rat.
When MED (pg/kg) was combined with Hypnorm (fentanyl pg/ml, fluanisone 10 mg/ml, Janssen) and pl/kg given intraperitoneally (IP) anaesthesia was produced after 10 minutes. In small animal species (i.e.
birds, rabbits, tortoises, snakes) DEX is right and proper because it is very powerful and need a small volume to give sedative effect . The small volume it’s also important because it’s necessary to inject small quantity of liquid in the little muscles of these particular animals.
Objectives: 1) To describe electroencephalogram (EEG) appearance in the awake dog and compare these results with EEG recordings after low dose medetomidine (2 μg/kg IV) followed by atipamezole (10 μg/kg, IM); 2) To institute EEG recordings after low dose medetomidine or dexmedetomidine as a standard of practice if focal abnormalities and amplitudes were not significantly altered by.

In veterinary anesthesia, medetomidine is often used in combinations with opioids (butorphanol, buprenorphine etc.) as premedication (before a general anesthetic) in healthy cats and dogs. It can be given by intramuscular injection (IM), subcutaneous injection (SC) or intravenous injection (IV).
When delivered intravenously, a significantly decreased dose is a: C₁₃H₁₆N₂. T Vähä-Vahe's 4 research works with citations and reads, including: Chemical restraint-reversal with medetomidine and atipamezole in veterinary small animal practice: a survey on the.
Dr. Looney graduated from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in She spent a year in private practice, then returned to Cornell’s small animal hospital for an instructorship in Community Medicine and Anesthesiology.
In she completed a Residency in Anesthesiology and became boarded in Anesthesiology in Ketamine (15 mg/kg i.m.) in combination with medetomidine ( mg/kg i.m.) and buprenorphine ( mg/kg i.m.) will provide general anaesthesia a,b,c, but use of lower doses of medetomidine and ketamine followed by intubation and use of a volatile agent is recommended in practice.
The analgesia associated with medetomidine only lasts 15 to 30 minutes but sedation can last 1 to 2 hours. Complete recovery can take 2 to 4 hours.
Within the first 3 to 5 minutes after IM injection, vomiting can occur. The effects of medetomidine can be reversed with the use of atipamezole. Jalanka H () The use of medetomidine, medetomidine-ketamine combinations and atipamezole at Helsinki zoo – a review of cases.

There is a low rate of side effects, largely due to atipamezole's high specificity for the α 2-adrenergic receptor. Atipamezole has a very quick onset, usually waking an animal up within 5 to 10 lism: Hepatic. Medetomidine is a relatively new sedative analgesic drug that is approved for use in dogs in Canada.

Injectable anaesthesia is often considered the method of choice for experimental procedures in small rodents .Alpha-2 agonists are routinely used in combination with other drugs to produce benefit of α 2 agonists is that their effects can be reversed using a specific antagonist, atipamezole .Of these agents, medetomidine is a popular choice in various species due Cited by: Atipamezole HCLTherapeutic Class:Alpha-2 Adrenergic Antagonist (Systemic Drug)General Notes: Alpha-2 adrenergic antagonist; reverses the effects of agonists such as dexmedetomidine, medetomidine, and safety data on use in pregnant or lactating reverse effects rapidly, including analgesia; animals should be observed and protected from self-harm or causing .Pharmacogenetics is the study of genetics as it relates to individual variation in the response to drugs.
