This technique was performed to allow for an additional approach to assist in ventilation. A modified ventilation nose cone was placed over the nose, which allowed the animal to not require endotracheal intubation. This method was effective in ventilating the animals during thoracic and abdominal procedures without requiring endotracheal intubation.
