sodium (8 mg/kg) administrated intravenously after premedication with xylazine hydrochloride (0.02 mg/kg) has been studied on six healthy female sheep using a crossover design.
A 49-year-old female diagnosed with lumbar intervertebral disc prolapse presented for lumbar laminectomy in the prone position and underwent standard anaesthesia induction [micro]cg [kg.sup.-1] , thiopentone
