Multigas analyser eliminates dangers of leaking anaesthetic gases

Nov 17 2020 Read 303 Times

Anaesthetic gases which leak into surrounding air during medical operations can cause the medical staff to experience nausea, dizziness, headaches, fatigue and even very serious conditions such as cancer. For this reason there are strict limits for anaesthetic gas concentration in air.

Medical staff can be exposed to waste anesthetic gases in many ways: gas can escape from around the patient's anesthesia mask, there may be leaks in the anesthesia system or gas may escape whilst purging the system. In addition, patients can exhale anesthetic gases for several days after surgery.

ETG’s latest FTIR multigas analyser, the FTIR 9500, uses full spectrum infrared analysis and can  measure all anaesthetic gases simultaneously. The FTIR 9500 is a high resolution and compact analyser with a  DTGS detector that operates at room temperature and is ideally suited for measuring all  halogenated and other compounds ubiquitous in anaesthetic gases such as Halothane, Isoflurane, Sevoflurane and Desflurane.

The ETG 9500 FTIR is a truly compact multigas analyser; it can detect more than 100 compounds simultaneously. It can be delivered as transportable system, configurated to suit the operator’s specific criteria,  also available on 19” rack mounting as well a desk version for use in labs and for R & D.

ETG’s ChemoCalc software includes all the necessary options, settings and views for basic, everyday measurements, and requires no previous experience to operate. The software supports touch screen devices as well, providing easy and efficient processing of the results in the field.
