In class Assignment:
Email your response to your instructor. Your weekly discussion is assigned below the assignment.
1. Discuss 2-3 differences between a non-rebreathing and a rebreathing semi-closed circle system.
2. List 3 parts of the anesthetic machine where leaks are most likely to occur. How often should a leak check be done?
Discuss something new you learned on anesthetic instrumentation and how this is going to benefit your patients in the future. If this is just review for you, discuss what common issues you are likely to see with the anesthetic machine. For example, baralyme is not changed as often as it should be, PPV is not adequately achieved, F/air cans are not weighed as often etc., and discuss how you can achieve compliance with these issues.
