In the present study, we prepared test lungs simulating neonates with and without lung injury, monitored the air flow and pressure at three different locations in the test circuit, measured two gas volumes, the gas volume delivered by the ventilator and that of actual [V.sub.T], and calculated the gas volume increase of the breathing circuit using three different types of mechanical ventilators with or without compensatory functions to conserve actual [V.sub.T] .
The main gas flow in the breathing circuit also fulfills this function.

During the first use of this reservoir bag in our operating theatre, we noticed a slightly looser connection of its plain neck to the connector, but there was no significant leak from any part of the breathing circuit or anaesthesia machine when we performed our routine pre-use check.
This ensures that ventilation is continued uninterrupted even if no fresh gas reaches the breathing circuit. This would also allow ventilation to be continued if all gas supplies fail.
