Anaesthetic conserving device AnaConDa®: dead space effect and significance for lung protective ventilation.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The anaesthetic conserving device AnaConDa(®) (ACD) reflects exhaled anaesthetic agents thereby facilitating the use of inhaled anaesthetic agents outside operating theatres. Expired CO2 is, however, also reflected causing a dead space effect in excess of the ACD internal volume. CO2 reflection from the ACD is attenuated by humidity. This study tests the hypothesis that sevoflurane further attenuates reflection of CO2. An analysis of clinical implications of our findings was performed.
