What is a Drager machine?

What is a Drager machine?

Our anesthesia machines are uniquely designed with ventilation technologies to deliver high precision tidal volume and thus help reduce the risk for postoperative pulmonary complications for all patient categories.

What is the working principle of anesthesia machine?

The anesthesia machine receives medical gases from a gas supply, controls the flow and reduces the pressure of desired gases to a safe level, vaporizes volatile anesthetics into the final gas mixture, and delivers the gases to a breathing circuit that is connected to the patient’s airway.

Where are Drager anesthesia machines made?

​With over 400,000 units sold around the world, Dräger vaporizers have set high standards for more than 50 years. Consistent, long-lasting quality made in Germany – by Dräger.

What are the instruments used in during anaesthesia?

Instruments commonly used for monitoring during anesthesia include:

  • An inflatable blood pressure cuff.
  • A pulse oximeter, a small instrument that is attached to your finger, toe, or earlobe to measure the level of oxygen in your blood.
  • An electrocardiogram (EKG, ECG) to monitor your heart activity.
  • A temperature probe.

What is anesthesia machine PDF?

anaesthesia machine is to prepare a gas mixture of. precisely known, but variable composition. The gas. mixture can then be delivered to a breathing system. Anaesthesia machine itself has evolved from a simple.

What gases are used in anesthesia machine?

[1] The medical gases commonly used for anaesthesia and critical care are oxygen, nitrous oxide, medical air, entonox, carbon dioxide and heliox.

What are the four major essential functions of anesthesia?

The machine performs four essential functions: (i) provides oxygen; (ii) accurately mixes anaesthetic gases and vapours; (iii) enables patient ventilation; and (iv) minimizes anaesthesia-related risks to patients and staff.

What technology is used in anesthesiology?

Technologies such as gas analyzers, arterial pulse oximeters, electronic infusion pumps, advanced airway devices, portable ultrasound, and echocardiographic imaging have reduced the mortality directly attributable to anesthesia.

What is a hypoxic guard?

Hypoxic guard systems are one of the safety systems in anesthesia machines that are designed to avoid the risk of delivering a hypoxic gas mixture to the patient during general anesthesia.

What are the components of general anesthesia?

Basic elements of general anesthesia include:

  • unconsciousness.
  • amnesia (loss of memory of pain or distress)
  • analgesia.
  • muscle relaxation.
  • diminished motor response to noxious stimuli.
  • reversibility.
