Canula was then attached to insufflator
to achieve intraperitoneal pressure of 14 mmHg.
regardless of what type of insufflator

Paul, Minn., can be connected to any insufflator

The PROTOCO2L TOUCH Colon Insufflator
provides a software controlled insufflation of carbon dioxide during CT Colonoscopy.
* C[O.sub.2] is diverted from the surgical insufflator
to the tip of the laparoscope, creating a barrier of dry gas over the lens that shields it from condensation, smoke and debris, keeping the lens consistently clear.
Once position of veress needle is confirmed, the needle is now attached to the insufflator
which delivers the C[O.sub.2] at the rate of 1 ml per min initially.

Wilkoff, I walk around work with an insufflator
