There are definite hazards to patients when scavenging systems fail- so consider the scavenger part of the breathing system and check it each day. Anaesthetic machines are designed to provide for a safe, non-hypoxic gas mixture delivered to the patient. The anesthesia delivery system comprises the anesthesia machine, vaporizers, ventilator, and waste gas scavenging system. … [Anesthetic equipment: fresh gas delivery systems. Therefore, better understanding of the basics of anaesthesia machine and checking each component of the machine for proper functioning prior to use is essential to minimise these hazards.
