An anaesthetic vaporizer must deliver a safe, reliable concentration of volatile agent to the patient. Anaesthetists should understand the basic principles of. Vaporizers are an integral part of modern-day anaesthesia, allowing the delivery of safe concentrations of volatile anaesthetic agent. Over time, vaporizer design. Anaesthesia vaporizers for inhalational anaesthetic agents. Principal, classification, types, hazards.

Vaporiers and Enflurane are less volatile SVP approx. The characteristics of the modern vapourisers with their special construction and operation are discussed below. This vapouriser is used in anaesthesia delivery unit and Aisys anaesthesia workstations of GE health-care. Kam’s notes on volatile uptake Goldman Variable bypass, incomplete vapourisation, flow-over without wicks, low resistance in-circuit, non-agent-specific but intended for Halothaneno temperature compensation, no interlocks.

Anesthesia Gas Machine- Vaporizers

Anaestesia the metering tank, the liquid anaesthetic passes through a fuel injector into a heated evaporation chamber where the saturated vapour of the liquid anaesthetic is produced. Switch between agents is performed by a touch on the intuitive display. The vapouriser has two independent gas circuits arranged in parallel. A liquid and a vapor in an enclosed space will always find its own equilibrium Figure The dual-circuit gas-vapour blender is a third type of vaporizer used exclusively for the agent desflurane.


Once the vapouriser has warmed up the shut off valve anaesthesi when the concentration control valve is in the on position. The American society for testing and materials anaesthesia workstation standard[ 1 ] contains the anaesfhesia provisions regarding vapourisers: Pop-up div Successfully Displayed This div only appears when the trigger link is hovered over. Despite its drawbacks, the drawover vaporizer is cheap to manufacture and easy to use.

Boiling Point – temperature at which SVP equals ambient pressure. Powell JF, Morgan C.

Open in a separate window. Filling a funnel-type vaporizer. They are checked during the system checkout, which means no need for calibration.

The TEC vpaorizers Desflurane vapouriser behaves differently. The fresh gas flow through the vapourising chamber flows from vaporlzers flow meter across the sump cover where it is diverted through the central cavity of the rotary valve and back through the intermittent positive pressure ventilation IPPV compensating assembly. Correct inflow can be determined from agent-specific tables that relate temperature, desired percentage output and FGF.

Because of the volatility of this agent, new systems were designed to contain, transfer, and vaporize it.

The third category of vaporizer the dual-circuit gas—vapour blender was created specifically for the agent desflurane. Tec 6 desflurane vaporizer: The vapouriser must be designed so that it cannot be overfilled when in the normal operating position. Clinically significant effects require: Volumes percent – percentage concentration of gas in a mixture; e.


Sucharita Chakravarti and Srabani Basu 1. Reprinted with permission of Elsevier. Missing O-rings and volatile agents. For halothane, enflurane, isoflurane, sevoflurane and desflurane.

InClover invented an ether inhaler with a water jacket, and by the late alternatives to ether came to anaesthesiia fore, mainly due to the introduction of spinal anaesthesia.

At a certain temperature, the boiling point, liquid molecules can enter anaestbesia vapour phase within the liquid, creating bubbles of saturated vapour that rise to the surface and break free.

The fraction diverted into the Isoflurane vapour chamber, from the preceding tableis 2. This is unique to each agent, so it follows that each agent must only be used in its own specific vaporizer.

Modern Anaesthesia Vapourisers

Include the concentration control dial, the bypass chamber, the vapourising chamber, the filler port and filler cap. Much improved Mk 3 was released in more linear output, keyed filler. These vapourisers are agent specific being calibrated for a specific gas and are used to deliver halothane, enflurane, isoflurane and sevoflurane, but not desflurane.

The electronic control mechanism is in the anaesthesia machine.
