Understanding Anesthetic Delivery Systems - White Paper

Knowing the functions of the anesthetic delivery system is extremely important in using them appropriately. When malfunctions occur, knowing the anesthetic delivery components will help in troubleshooting the system. The anesthetic delivery system consists of four parts: 1) Gas source, 2) Anesthetic machine, 3) Breathing system, and 4) Scavenging system. The functions of the anesthetic delivery system are to deliver oxygen and anesthetic gases, to remove CO2 from the breathing system, to allow for ventilation (manual or mechanical) and to scavenge waste gases.
