Cheah, Pike See and Low, Kiat Cheong and Mohidin, Norhani and Mohd Ali, Bariah and Myint, Maung and Abdul Latiff, Azian (2007) Ketamine-xylazine/tiletamine-zolazepam prolonged anesthesia in Cynomolgus monkeys. Online Journal of Veterinary Research, 11 (1). pp. 39-45. ISSN 1328-925X


The physiological effects of a mixture of ketamine, xylazine, tiletamine and zolazepam (KT/XZ), in cynomolgus monkeys during 24 hr anesthesia is described. Eight were induced with ketamine IM and anesthetized with IV KT/XZ. In all, anesthesia was maintained for 24 hours with large decreases in rectal temperature, heart and respiratory rates but moderate hypotension. All monkeys recovered normally 4 hours post-anesthesia. These results suggest that KX/TZ mixture could be used for prolonged anesthesia in cynomolgus monkeys.
