On this week's episode of Aquadocs, host Michelle Greenfield interviews Dr. James Bailey, a board certified veterinary anesthesiologist who specializes in zoo and wildlife animals, particularly marine mammals. Dr. Bailey describes the start of marine mammal anesthesia and how far we have come since its origin (like completing a successful 9 hour anesthetic procedure with an animal receiving a CT and bilateral cataract surgery). This episode is jam packed with zebra mussel clam research, the mechanics of marine mammal anesthesia, and fun facts you definitely don't want to miss.
