nausea after

Hi all-
On the post anesthesia gagging-- I think that is it Kim and others!!!
When we had our ferrets intubated during surgeries over the years or
receiving inj & iso combo's -- they did gag etc.

The past 1 1/2 years they have been masked w/o intubation-- no one gags
at all now - which I find a great asset for those with abdominal
incisions. Just another pobsertvation form a shelter Mom who picks up &
post ops after anesthesia Oh yes , on occassion , when there is a
shortage or real emergency - I still get to assist in the OR!
