anesthesia machine

an apparatus for administering inhalation anesthetic gases and vapors and for controlling ventilation. Although there are many different models, all have the following features: a delivery system for medical gases, a flowmeter to measure fresh gas flow (such as medical air, oxygen, nitrous oxide), vaporizers for volatilizing and combining the anesthetic agents with oxygen and other carrier gases, a circuit for delivering the gas to and from the patient, monitoring equipment or gauges, a ventilator, and a scavenging system to collect and discharge excess waste gas. It has multiple systems for detecting and alerting clinicians to potentially dangerous conditions.
