Example text

Components of a breathing system All systems consist of the following: • A connection for fresh gas input Usually the common gas outlet on the anaesthetic machine. • A reservoir bag Usually of 2 L capacity to allow the patient’s peak inspiratory demands (30– 40 L/min) to be met with a lower constant flow from the anaesthetic machine. Its excursion gives an indication of ventilation and allows manual ventilation of the patient. It also acts as a further safety device, being easily distended at low pressure if obstruction occurs.

Second stage In this period there may be breath-holding, struggling and coughing. It is often referred to as the stage of excitation. The pupils will be dilated and there is loss of the eyelash reflex. Third stage This is the stage of surgical anaesthesia. There is reduction in respiratory activity, with progressive intercostal paralysis. Muscle tone is also reduced and laryngeal reflexes are lost. The pupils start by being slightly constricted and gradually dilate. This stage ends with diaphragmatic paralysis.

Inhalational anaesthesia Inhalational anaesthetics are a group of halogenated hydrocarbons with relatively low boiling points. A ‘vaporizer’ is used to produce an accurate concentration in the inspired gas mixture. Nitrous oxide is the only other drug in this category. The inspired concentration of all of these compounds is expressed as the percentage by volume. 4. There are two concepts that will help in understanding the use of inhalational anaesthetics: minimum alveolar concentration and solubility.
