Example text

Cannulation of a specific artery or vein will typically meet this requirement, though in rodents, the usable life span of the cannula is limited by the length of time the cannula remains patent. Yoburn et al. (1984) compared jugular, carotid, and femoral cannulas for long-term sampling of blood. They found the femoral artery cannula was preferable in terms of patency and postsurgical weight loss. Collection from a cannula is the same regardless of implant site. The cannula is typically exteriorized between the animal’s scapula and a stylet is inserted into the end of the cannula.

No conclusion has been reached about the best method of restraint. The basic concerns are that manual methods and physical restraint require acclimation to allow the animal to become accustomed to the procedure and tracings can be reasonably free of muscular artifact. Also, varying pressures of clamps or handling during the restraint may affect the results. The use of anesthesia has been shown to produce changes in the ECG and the possibility of drug interactions between the anesthetic and the test compound may occur.

Subcutaneous route Absorption following subcutaneous injection is typically slower than following intramuscular injection. This may be advantageous if a relatively sustained period of absorption is desired. Another advantage of the subcutaneous route versus the intramuscular route is a much larger volume of test compound can be administered. Five to 10 mL can be easily injected with little to no discomfort to the animals. This can be beneficial for test compounds that have limited solubility. Suitable sites for injection are the ventral body, the flank, and shoulders.
