'Closed Circuit' Anaesthesia

  • PA Foster

Abstract

The advantages of using rebreathing circuits in anaesthesia are discussed and the principles for their correct employment are outlined. Practical methods are described. By using closed circuit equipment in the manner described, the initial cost of the apparatus could be recouped within one year, because of the saving in the consumption of expensive imported anaesthetics.
