Technical Note

Summary

Smooth induction and maintenance of electroanesthesia permitting surgery requires a device for applying current that is mechanically stable and maintains good electrical contact. The electrode holder described meets these requirements. It can be easily and rapidly attached and is well tolerated by the animal. Skin burn has been eliminated at current levels of up to 60 mA peak in tests using both sinusoidal and pulsed d.c. waveforms.
