Design of pneumatic gas analyzers for anesthetics

  • 11 Accesses


1. The feasibility of pneumatic gas analyzers for respiratory anesthetic mixtures with a single evaporating anesthetic has been established.

2. A pneumatic gas analyzer for anesthetics satisfies the basic anesthesiological requirements and can be used as an integral part of anesthetic equipment.

3. The gas analyzer's data unit must be based on the differential principle to secure the required sensitivity and accuracy of gas analysis.

4. The need for gas analyzers for respiratory anesthetic mixtures with a single evaporating anesthetic can be satisfied by simple small-size pneumatic gas analyzers.
