Care and maintenance of an anesthetic machine

An anesthesia machine is a medical equipment used in procedures that require providing anesthetic gases to patients and monitoring their breathing throughout the process. It is a device that combines mechanics, engineering and electronics, as it results from a mixture of electrical, mechanical and pneumatic components, which integrate all the components necessary to carry out general anesthesia.

An anesthesia machine is a medical equipment used in procedures that require providing anesthetic gases to patients and monitoring their breathing throughout the process. It is a device that combines mechanics, engineering and electronics, as it results from a mixture of electrical, mechanical and pneumatic components, which integrate all the components necessary to carry out general anesthesia.

It is composed of elements such as vaporizers, fans, breathing system, monitors and scanning systems. And today they have become indispensable equipment in the operating room, as they guarantee the supply of an exact amount of anesthetic gas to a patient during a surgical process, so that the health of the patient is not affected. Anesthesia machines are complex equipment that have monitoring systems, analyzers, alarms and physiological record that allow proper control of anesthesia doses. On the other hand, they are able to monitor changes in vital signs, regardless of whether they are the result of surgery or anesthesia.

What is the purpose of an anesthetic machine?

The main objective of any anesthesia machine is to provide safe, adequate, programmed and continuously or intermittently the administration of oxygen, medicinal gases and anesthetic agents; allowing spontaneous or controlled ventilation of the patient.

The anesthesia machines receive the medicinal gases and accurately distribute the flow and pressure of each gas according to the patient’s needs. These must be handled by professionals who are familiar with the equipment and are properly trained in its use, as they must also periodically check its calibrations and functioning.

Care of an anesthetic machine

  • First of all, you should clean the anesthesia machine daily, as it may contain dust and other particles from the air, so cleaning the anesthesia machine daily will ensure that it remains new and preventing these elements from affecting its proper functioning.
  • It is important to make sure that the water traps in the anesthesia machine are not full. A full water trap can cause major problems in the machine, even completely stopping its operation.
  • Keep the batteries in good condition. Leaving the machine plugged into the wall outlet will keep the equipment’s batteries, and thus last longer.
  • The device must be turned off daily in order to extend the life of the equipment, it is ideal to turn off the anesthesia machine if it is not being used.
  • Litholyme or Sodalime should be changed as required, both Litholyme and Sodalime are elements that absorb the carbon dioxide left by a patient’s body during a surgical procedure, most Litholyme & Sodalime change color once they have been used, so once this happens, they need to be changed.
  • It is also recommended to do a leakage test daily, weekly or after each use.
  • Doing a daily or weekly leak test or even just before each time it is to be used, will ensure that your machine has no problem involving the gas impacting the patient fully or dispersing in the air.
