Baralyme dehydration increases and soda lime dehydration decreases the concentration of compound A resulting from sevoflurane degradation in a standard anesthetic circuit.


UNLABELLED Soda lime and Baralyme brand carbon dioxide absorbents degrade sevoflurane to CF2 = C(CF3)OCH2F, a potentially nephrotoxic vinyl ether called Compound A. Dehydration of these absorbents increases both the degradation of sevoflurane to Compound A and the degradation of Compound A. The balance between sevoflurane degradation and Compound A… (More)
