If your hospital or clinic is offering surgical procedures then an anesthesia machine is a basic necessity.
An anesthetic or anesthesia machine is medical equipment that mixes and releases medical gases in controlled amounts. The purpose of which is for patients to receive numbing or sleep-inducing anesthetic doses prior to a surgical operation.
It's considered as the most important equipment of an anesthesiologist by ensuring the precise creation and disbursement of an otherwise dangerous mix of noxious gases.
Anesthesia machines are a major and sound investment for any organization in the medical field. Below are it’s most common applications.
Hospitals - These machines are a must have for operating rooms and emergency trauma centers to sedate patients about to undergo surgery. Anesthesia machines used for major surgical operations are often the most expensive and most feature-laden.
Dentistry clinics - Dentists use a simplified version of the anesthetic machine, usually without a ventilator or anesthetic vaporizer. Patients only require mild sedation to keep them conscious while taking away the feeling of pain.
Veterinary clinics - In animal care, anesthetics are delivered from the machine to the animal by using a breathing system with a special face mask or nasal tube fitted for the particular patient animal.
Child or toddler care - Used only in extreme cases where a small child is needed to be tested at length using MRI or other imaging devices. Since these tests require patients to be as still as possible, fidgety children might be put into sleep prior to examination.
Though there had been many modifications and innovations, the basic design of Anesthesia Machines remains the same and can be broadly categorized into two types.
Continuous - Gas flows during both breathing cycles, inhalation, and exhalation, delivering anesthetic gas continuously to the patient. This is the most common type of anesthesia machine and is also called "Boyle's machine" in reference to its inventor, Henry Boyle.
Intermittent - Gas only flows during inhalation, meaning the machine only lets gas flow while the patient inhaled, and stops when the patient exhaled, preventing waste. This was an innovation brought about by Dr. Elmer McKesson.
Even at its most basic, the anesthesia machine is the most important tool of an anesthesiologist because it provides the most accurate way to prepare and administer anesthetic gas to patients. When looking for an anesthesia machine, look at these important features that should be included in any modern units.
Low oxygen shut off system - A gauge that can shut off the machine when there is an insufficient supply of oxygen caused by an empty tank, tied up tubes, or disconnected hoses. If possible, operators and hospital personnel should be alerted by an audible sound
Microprocessor controlled gas flow - Pipeline gauges are digitally controlled and monitored allowing for an accurate mixture of gases. This can also function as a pressure gauge monitor that issues alerts when any supply falls below acceptable levels.
Backup power source - In the event of a power failure, the machine should switch to a battery backup that can last for a minimum of 45 minutes or until there is a consistent electrical supply from a secondary power source like an electrical generator.
Safety check upon startup - Upon starting the machine, there should be a computerized safety self-checkout feature that runs diagnostic tests to check for errors and malfunctions.
