1

A full E-tank contains ____ L. To find the volume in our E-tank look at the pressure and ?

700L
multiply by 0.3

2

What is P.I.S.S.?

Pin index Safety System. So you literally can't put an Oxygen input tube into the N2O Wall outlet.

3

Regardless of Oxygen Flow a good vaporizer will lead to the same _____.

Outflow

4

Main use for Oxygen flush is?
Do not use in a?

recovery
Low Volume circuit/ Non-rebreathing system

5

Difference between Semi-closed and Closed Breathing Systems?

Partial rebreathing v. closed rebreathing

6

In a closed breathing system how much oxygen do you need?

5-10 ml/kg/min

7

What is the main component in Soda Lime?

CaOH2

8

Canister gets warm when working, calcium carbonate (last step of the conversion reactions) is hard to crumble, dye turns blue/purple as soda lime is used up.

9

How to calculate size of breathing bag?

Tidal Volume x 6
(Weight in kg x 10 ml/kg) x 6

high flow of oxygen

13

What level of oxygen flow do you need in a Non-Rebreathing system?

200-300 ml/kg/min

14

Bain Coaxial System

inspiratory tubing is inside the corrogated tubing, so the expiratory gas warms the fresh inspiratory gas.

15

When using a circle breathing system its important to ?

support ventilation and minimize deadspace
