We are always looking for a way to free up our hands when administering mask anesthesia to our exotic surgical patients. Our
solution: We make a hole in the center of tie gauze and place it between the mask's attachment and the tube and then tie the
gauze around the patient's face. Always make sure the mask is not pressed against the animal's nose because this would make
it impossible for the animal to breathe.
