The resistance from the adjustable pressure limiting (APL) valve on the paediatric Mapleson D is small (2-3 cmH 2 0) when the valve is fully open The requirement for high fresh gas flows makes this system uneconomical in patients greater than 10-12 kg It must be possible to contain the patient's tidal volume within the breathing tubing and the reservoir bag, otherwise waste gas (or air) will be entrained during inspiration The narrow breathing tubing may cause resistance during peak expiratory gas flow.

Both systems may be used in the spontaneously breathing patient, or may be used to provide IPPV. Unless specifically stated, most systems manufactured for the veterinary market are not suitable for spontaneously breathing patients weighing less than 12-15 kg. 8. 9a).

Pressure gauges for oxygen and nitrous oxide on the front panel of a modern anaesthetic machine. 22 Chapter 4 The anaesthetic machine and vaporizers The gauges are labelled, colour-coded and calibrated for each gas or vapour. The pressure gauge for oxygen indicates the gas volume in the cylinder, calculated using Boyle's law (PV=K). For example, an E-sized cylinder contains 680 litres of gas when filled to 13,700 kPa at 20°C. At the same temperature, a pressure gauge registering 4500 kPa indicates that only 230 litres remain.
