I have an experiment going involving testing the response to hypoxia in
rats and requiring recovery of the animals for a week or so. I would be
grateful for some information on the CNS effects of chloral hydrate (or
whether there is some better anaesthetic agent that I can use). I cannot
use pentobarbital because of its depression nor urethane because the
animals do not recover nor ketamine because of its glutamate antagonism.
Gaseous anaesthetics are out because of the need to administer hypoxic gas
