A totally closed feed back controlled anesthesia- and ventilation circuit has been developed feasible to be applied for artificial ventilation with tidal volumes as low as 5 ml at a rate of up to 60/min and for spontaneous ventilation with on-line measurement of physiological lung parameters (pressure, volume, flow). Oxygen inflow is regulated via actual… CONTINUE READING
