[Dysfunction of vaporizers and nitrous oxide: solubility or viscosity?].

Abstract

Sudden switch of carrier gas from O2 to the N2O/O2 mixture results in an acute decrease in vapour output for a variable delay of time. This has been attributed to the dissolution of N2O in the volatile anaesthetic liquid. The final vapour concentration at steady state had been previously reported to be lower than the concentration dial setting: this was… (More)
