Example text

In general, cylinders should be stored upright and away from direct heat, corrosive chemicals and fumes. The store room should be locked, well ventilated and fire proof. Bulk Storage Liquid oxygen is stored in a metal flask and released into the hospital pipeline through a system of pipes and valves. A vacuum-insulated evaporator (VIE) consists of a double walled pressure vessel containing liquid oxygen at minus 160°C surrounded by an insulating vacuum. Warmth from the environment supplies the latent heat of vaporisation to produce a continuous supply of oxygen gas that is vented off if it exceeds demand.

Vaporisers became necessary when nitrous oxide and oxygen were delivered through a machine. Early vaporisers were glass bottles containing the liquid agent over which flowed the carrier gas. Output was regulated by a flow splitting valve that allowed some or all of the gas to pass into the bottle instead of flowing past. Low resistance vaporisers could be placed in the breathing circuit whereas higher flow resistance required the vaporiser to be sited on the back bar. These flow controls were not calibrated and the inhaled concentration varied considerably with the flow rate of the carrier gas and as the liquid level fell and cooled with use.

They consist of a self inflating bag and one or more unidirectional valves to prevent rebreathing. The two litre bag is made of either antistatic black rubber (Ambubag®, Ambu International, Denmark) or off white silicone rubber (Laerdal® bag, Asmund Laerdal, Norway). Manual compression forces gas through a one way valve and 15/22 mm connector into the lungs. Bag reflation is passive with atmospheric air entrained through another one way valve. This can be enriched with oxygen jetted directly into the bag through a nipple or an additional reservoir bag, which attaches to the entrainment port.
