  Exsanguination
nce the animal has been rendered unconscious, exsanguination procedures should be initiated to ensure death using a pointed, very sharp knife with a rigid blade at least 6 inches in length.
As indicated previously, exsanguination procedures are required with the use of penetrating captive bolt.
Alternatively, one may sever the brachial vasculature by lifting a front leg and inserting the knife deeply into the axillary area at the point of the elbow and cutting the skin, blood vessels, and surrounding tissue until the limb can be laid back away from the thorax of the animal.

 Exsanguination - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Exsanguination is used primarily in the meat industry, as a method of slaughter.
Slaughter by exsanguination is mandated by Judaic kashrut (however the captive bolt is forbidden) and Islamic halal dietary laws.
Exsanguination is a relatively uncommon and dramatic cause of death in humans.

 Pneumatic exsanguinator and method for exsanguinating a limb - Patent 4781189
The hand exsanguinator is inflated first to evacuate blood from the hand then the arm exsanguinator is pressurized from the distal to the proximal and to the desired pressure.
After exsanguination, the extremity to be operated on can be exposed while the other exsanguinators on the limb may be left in place and deflated or, if necessary, pressure may be maintained at desired level during the surgical procedure.
The use of the exsanguinator for a partial exsanguination to aid in intravenous use is a practical application of this method to eliminate the probing with an i.v.

 Slaughter and Animal Welfare
Exsanguination is the process that causes the actual death of the animal.
In exsanguination, the animal's throat is cut while he is unconscious and hanging upside down.
It is normal to see twitching and kicking while the animal is being "bled out." Such movement is not an indicator of pain or consciousness assuming the animal has been properly stunned—it is a biological response to nerves having been damaged and the loss of blood from the body.

Poultry can be exsanguinated with a diagonal cut from the corner of the jaw towards the ear on the other side, or by a knife thrust through the roof of the mouth to severe the brain and its major blood vessels.
The exsanguination or sticking of meat animals in an abattoir is usually performed by severing the carotid arteries and the jugular vein at the base of the neck.
During exsanguination, respiratory movements of the thorax may be stimulated, and neurogenic and hormonal mechanisms attempt to restore the blood pressure by increasing the peripheral resistance by vasoconstriction.

The rather confusing advice within the literature as to duration of elevation, stimulated a study in the arm which revealed the optimal duration of elevation to be 5 min, a period somewhat longer than generally advised.
Volume changes in the calves of seven male volunteers during elevation at 45 degrees and 90 degrees were assessed using strain gauge plethysmography.
To achieve maximal exsanguination it is recommended that the leg should be elevated at an angle of 45 degrees for 5 min.

 The Dubious Quick Kill, part 1
Of these, exsanguination is the most common, with hemorrhaging confined principally to the body cavity because stabbing wounds tend to close after the weapon is withdrawn.
Because exsanguination is the leading and most frequent cause of death in stabbing and incising wounds, it is not unreasonable to direct our attention initially to wounds to the cardiovascular system and further, to consider the evidence provided by the medical records and coroners reports of the current era.
Exsanguination is the principal mechanism of death caused by stabbing and incising wounds and death by this means is seldom instantaneous.

Early exsanguination was found to correlate only with a shorter time from injury to repair and not with maximum preoperative blood pressure or number and type of accompanying injuries.
Mortality was significantly associated with age greater than 50 years as well as exsanguination, shorter hours to diagnosis, and shorter hours from injury to repair.
Except for age, demographic and clinical information available in the acute setting was not found to be predictive of early exsanguination or death, including the appearance of the emergency aortogram.

 Immobilization and Exsanguination Effects on Meat Quality   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-13)
The manner in which livestock are immobilized, slaughtered, and exsanguinated can affect final meat quality.
Bleeding (also called exsanguination) is important because extra blood in the meat cuts is unappealing to consumers.
Blood is also an ideal growth medium for the microorganisms which cause meat to spoil so removing as much blood as possible can help increase shelf life of the meat.

Killing methods currently in use are: exsanguination without prior stunning, manual percussive stunning, with or without subsequent bleeding, and carbon dioxide narcosis followed by exsanguination.
The chosen method of killing is at present dictated by a variety of factors including the volume of fish being handled and different demands on fish farmers by their customers.
However, there is an increasing awareness in the industry of the need to ensure that slaughter takes place under humane conditions and that fish should be stunned prior to slaughter by a method which causes immediate loss of consciousness which lasts until death.

 AASV News archive - Campylobacter - Prevalence in Swine and Pork
USDA researchers from the Microbial Food Safety Research Unit have determined the prevalence of Campylobacter species in a sample of swine and swine carcasses at a slaughter and processing facility.
Thirty composite carcass samples, representing 360 swine carcasses, were taken immediately after exsanguination, immediately after polishing, after the final wash, and after overnight chilling at 2°C. Thirty matching composite rectal samples were also taken immediately after exsanguination, and 60 non-matching individual colon samples were collected from the same lot of swine during evisceration.
Campylobacter was detected on 33% (10 of 30) of the composite carcasses immediately after exsanguination, 0% (0 of 30) after polishing, 7% (2 of 30) immediately before chilling, and 0% (0 of 30) after overnight chilling.

 Deer newsletter- April 1999
In abattoirs where the time interval between electrical stunning and the initiation of exsanguination was less than 5 seconds, thoracic stick exsanguination significantly reduced the incidence of ecchymosis in comparison to the alternative method of making a gash across the neck.
In abattoirs where the minimum interval possible between stunning and initiation of exsanguination was approximately 15 seconds, electrical stunning reduced the amount of ecchymosis in deer by both thoracic stick or gash methods of exsanguination, in comparison to captive bolt stunning.
The researchers suggested that the down-regulation of voltage by Muslim slaughtermen should be discouraged as the interval to cessation of heartbeat (mean of 114 seconds after stunning) was not affected by voltage, whereas consciousness was affected.
