How does it work?

  1. expose animal to anaesthetics in induction chamber for initial anaesthesia
  2. take animal out of induction chamber and place "cord" around its front teeth
  3. slowly pull the animal with its snout/nose into A.
  4. secure "cord" with tape
  5. because the intubation aid is connected to the vaporizer, the animal is exposed to anaesthetic gas constantly (B).
  6. the "excessive /exhausted gas" is being disposed off through hose C.
  7. after intubation the animal can be connected to the UNO Micro Ventilator.
