Common features of the small animal anesthesia machine include a pop-off valve designed to interface with an active waste gas evacuation system and maintain a passively full rebreathing bag; a non-rebreathing outlet port; and 200 ml to four liter O2 flowmeter. It has an easy, quick change absorber canister.
This machine is ideal for animals that weigh over 250 pounds. Tapered valves allow for quick connections of the hoses and bag. Stack Valve™ design reduces resistance by decreasing the distance air must travel. Pop-off valve is designed to interface with an active waste gas evacuation system and maintain a passively full rebreathing bag.
Sodasorb® LF CO2 Absorbent is specifically formulated to prevent the degradation of anesthesia gases that can lead to problematic byproducts, and has a permanent color change when absorbent is exhausted.
The Modified Jackson Rees is a popular choice for a non-rebreathing system. The control valve allows you to close the system for hand bagging and then reopen it to a passive condition. The waste gas is evacuated from the circuit by an evacuation hose with 19 mm fittings.
Moving from rebreathing to non-rebreathing is quick and easy when this adapter is placed in-line.
The pop-off occlusion valve helps to prevent an accidental pneumothorax due to leaving the pop-off valve closed. By simply depressing a button on top, the valve temporarily blocks the gas flow so that a breath may be given to the patient. Upon release, the valve opens and no adjustment of the pop-off valve is required.
The Pop-Off Valve allows a breathing bag to remain passively full, which allows you to give the patient a manual breath without having to flush the system. The valve will interface with a properly adjusted active waste gas evacuation system.
Medical-grade Sodasorb® (soda lime USP-NF) is the original CO2 absorbent and has been the market leader for years. It is specially designed to provide exceptional CO2 absorption performance, superior color indication contrast, and optimal resistance to dusting.
The Universal F-Circuit is designed to maintain humidity and prevent heat loss. The F-circuit fits almost any anesthesia machine designed to deliver rebreathing anesthesia.
