the frame; a connection for piped-in gases; the flowmeter(s);
the oxygen flush assembly; tubing and adapters to connect a
precision vaporizer; and a common outlet connection to the patient
circuit. Additional items may include a CO2
absorber; additional flowmeters; yoke/regulator assembly for
small cylinders of gases; scavenging interface device; instrument
shelf; and more.
Vaporizer (direct-reading, variable bypass)
mounted onto the anesthesia machine. Changes the liquid anesthetic
agent to a measurable, controllable vapor and delivers that
vapor into the carrier gas stream from the anesthesia machine
into the breathing circuit at a rate unaffected by temperature
or carrier gas flow rates.
the combination of carrier gas and anesthetic agent to the
patient and collects the waste gas for channeling to evacuation.
Anesthesia Machine Services
examination and documentation of piped-in gas connections
and cylinder yoke assemblies; confirmation of flow accuracy
of the flowmeters; physical inspection of oxygen flush valve;
physical inspection and cleaning of CO2
absorber; replacement of gaskets and seals as necessary; inspection
of all tubing, connections and fittings, with replacement
as necessary; and a physical examination of your vaporizer.
requires the vaporizer be removed from your anesthesia machine;
a comparable loaner is provided at no charge during your vaporizer's
service. Service of a precision vaporizer is NOT something
that can be performed on-site. At the service center your
vaporizer will be completely dismantled and cleaned; wicks,
seals and gaskets will be replaced; worn or damaged parts
will be replaced as needed; the vaporizer is then reassembled
and recalibrated; multi-phase testing is performed to verify
percentage output concentrations to factory specifications.
Your freshly serviced vaporizer is then returned to you with
a one-year warranty.
an external physical examination of the vaporizer and a vaporizer
efficacy test, which confirms that the percentage concentration
set on the vaporizer dial is the percent concentration being
delivered. A high-pressure leak test is performed to confirm
leakage is not present. This service does nothing to repair
or replace gaskets, wicks or seals of the vaporizer. It is
offered as an occasional alternative for, but not a replacement
of, full servicing of the vaporizer.
Breathing circuits are generally disposable
and as such do not require service. We can replace them
at your request and we will be happy to assist you in selecting
or designing circuits specific to your needs.
