This module provides a comprehensive review of the most commonly used technique for providing general anesthesia for rat or mouse models. The module also provides theory and demonstration of judgement of anesthetic depth, an integral part of using any general anesthetics. The module has two components. The theoretical component is on-line and may be taken at your convenience by logging on to Quercus with your UTORid once you are registered. Once you have passed the theoretical component, you will be registered for the practical, hands-on session. The anesthetic module is offered on an as needed basis throughout the year.
