Extracted from text ... Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia & Analgesia ? March 2006 41 TRAVEL FELLOWSHIP Low flow techniques provide a long duration of reliable anaesthesia at minimal cost. The use of low flows requires a leak free circuit and anaesthetic machine. Should leaks occur during low flow anaesthesia, these will be immediately obvious and rapidly rectified. Anaesthetic machines have been made increasingly safe with many modern machines incorporating a leak test as a standard on initiation. The Selectatec TM vapouriser control for multiple vapourisers has evolved from a system that allowed vapouriser activation without delivering agent to the system, to the ..
